Information about important natural features of your property is available from several Loudoun County government agencies.
Soils, Drainage, Floodplain & Wetlands
The Natural Resources Team within the Department of Building and Development has information about the surface and subsurface soil and rock characteristics and properties present on a specific parcel, and whether those features will cause any problems for the intended use.
Information such as depth to rock, wetness, natural drainage, drainfield potential or vineyard potential, karst land formations (limestone) and shrink-swell clays is available.
The county can provide site-specific information and interpretation of soils, existing landscape features and associated problems.
We can also provide information regarding structural stability and mitigation of soil/geologic-related problems as well as groundwater availability and surface and groundwater monitoring.
