Soils

The soil characteristics in the county reflect the strong glacial influence, which left behind both fine clays and course sands. Van Buren County has an abundance of soils well suited for agriculture and development, most of which require a drainage system to handle excess storm water. The Soil Survey book of Van Buren County serves as a reference for specific soil types and locations and is available through this office.
