Description

Shrinking and swelling soils can damage homes, roads, utilities, and septic systems, so it's important to investigate and consider soil characteristics for land use planning. This publication describes the causes of shrinking and swelling in soils, shows the distribution of soils most likely to shrink and swell in Indiana, and relates this problem to septic system performance.
