Welcome to Richland Soil & Water

Property owners are faced with many decisions regarding land management, and we can help you meet your goals. We offer assistance with:

  • drainage and erosion concerns
  • flooding
  • pond creation and maintenance
  • forestry management
  • agricultural programs

We also provide Aerial-GPS maps of individual properties.

Don’t Forget

If you are moving soil you need to consult with us about getting a stormwater permit so that you are in compliance with the Stormwater Management and Sediment Control Regulations for Richland County.

Let’s work together to keep Richland County green and clean!
