Soil Management

During a soil quality assessment or other assessment and management activities, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) can encounter a variety of issues. It is BLM’s responsibility to address (or have them addressed by the responsible party) these issues. Additionally, many of BLM’s authorized management activities affect soil.
