Title: All companies submitting APDs and PODs for CBNG projects must submit a soil survey for the project area
Text: C. Soil Survery Requirements: "All companies submitting APDs and PODs for CBNG projects must submit a soil survey for the project area. One source for this information is the 1:24,00 scale NRCS soil maps by county (SSURGO Data). A summary of the digital SSURGO data available from the NRCS is available at http://nris.state.mt.us/nrcs/soils/datapage.html. STATSGO soil data, at 1:250,000 scale, for the entire state of Montana is also available at http://nris.state.mt.us/gis/datatop.html. The STATSGO data should only be used in areas where SSURGO data is not available."
