Basic soil information is vital for many homeowners and landowners in Pennsylvania.

In 1989, Dr. Ed Ciolkosz and Dr. Dan Fritton worked to create the following video helping landowners and sewage enforcement owners understand some of the basics of soils, landscapes and how they are important in disposing of effluent from septic systems. The video is targeted to the Ridge and Valley province of Pennsylvania, but provides very useful base knowledge of soils and landscapes.
