Soils. Purchaser acknowledges that soils within the State of Colorado consist of both expansive soils and low-density soils, and certain areas contain potential heaving bedrock associated with expansive, steeply dipping bedrock, which will adversely affect the integrity of a dwelling unit constructed on a Lot if the dwelling unit and the Lot on which it is constructed are not properly maintained. Expansive soils contain clay mineral, which have the characteristic of changing volume with the addition or subtraction of moisture, thereby resulting in swelling and/or shrinking soils. The addition of moisture to low-density soils causes a realignment of soil grains, thereby resulting in consolidation and/or collapse of the soils. Purchaser agrees that it shall obtain a current geotechnical report for the Property and an individual lot soils report for each Lot containing design recommendations from a licensed geotechnical engineer for all structures to be placed upon the Lot. Purchaser shall require all homes to have engineered footing and foundations consistent with results of the individual lot soils report for each Lot and shall take reasonable action as shall be necessary to ensure that the homes to be constructed upon the Lots shall be done in accordance with proper design and construction techniques. Purchaser shall also provide a copy of the geotechnical report for the Property and the individual lot soils report for each Lot to Seller within seven (7) days after Seller’s request for the same, and agrees in the event that this Contract terminates for any reason Purchaser shall use reasonable efforts to assign, without liability or recourse to Purchaser, at Seller’s request, the geotechnical report for the Property and the individual lot soils report for each Lot to any subsequent homebuilder who enters into a purchase and sale agreement with Seller to purchase all of a portion of the Lots. SELLER HAS MADE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, CONCERNING THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF EXPANSIVE SOILS, LOW-DENSITY SOILS OR DIPPING BEDROCK UPON THE PROPERTY AND PURCHASER SHALL UNDERTAKE SUCH INVESTIGATION AS SHALL BE REASONABLE AND PRUDENT TO DETERMINE THE EXISTENCE OF THE SAME. Purchaser shall provide all disclosures required by C.R.S. Section 6-6.5-101 in every home sales contract entered in to by Purchaser with respect to subsequent sales of a Lot to a homebuyer. Purchaser, on behalf of itself and its successors and assigns, hereby releases the Sell...
Soils. (1) To meet the soils eligibility criteria, easements must contain at least 50 percent prime, unique, statewide, or locally important soil unless otherwise determined by the State Conservationist. The State Conservationist, with the advice of the State Technical Committee, may elect to increase or decrease the percentage of prime, unique, statewide, or locally important soil required for eligibility.
Soils. The Mescalero-Monahans Shinnery Dune System is an eolian sand dune system patchily distributed in Chaves, Eddy, Lea, and Roosevelt Counties in New Mexico, and Andrews, Gaines, Crane, Ector, Ward, and Xxxxxxx Counties in Texas (Xxxxxxxxx 2006; Xxxxxxx et al. 2016; Muhs and Xxxxxxxx 1995). In the Covered Area, there are 40 unique soil map units, but the dominant soils in the Covered Area are xxxxx undulating or hummocky upland soils with deep to very deep sand layers and clay or loamy subsoils (Natural Resources Conservation Service [NRCS] 2020a). Key soil properties for the dominant soils in the system include moderate to high permeability, well drained to excessively drained, negligible surface runoff and water erosion, and moderate to severe wind erosion hazard. Vegetation reduces the wind erosion hazard. Duneland areas contain active sand dunes and sand sheets are dynamic, constantly shifting in direction with the prevailing winds, and are easily eroded and reformed due to sand moved and trapped by wind and vegetation (Muhs and Xxxxxxxx 1995, 2001; NRCS 2020a). Active sand dunes are generally devoid of vegetation and when present are located on the outer edges or low areas that may temporarily be ponded (NRCS 2020a). Changes in vegetation in dunelands due to drought, fire, precipitation or removal may result in increases or decreases in acreage of dunes, or these dunes may shift in location across the landscape over time (Muhs and Xxxxxxxx 1995, 2001; Xxxxxxx et al. 2013). Areas with dense vegetation have more gradual gently rolling landforms and are more stable (Muhs and Xxxxxxxx 1995, 2001). In general, soils within the Covered Area demonstrate very moderate to high wind erosion potential due to sand particle size, absence of vegetation, low organic matter content, and high calcium carbonate content. Conversely, water erosion potential is very low due to the low relief landscape, high water table, and well to excessively drained soils. The dominant soils in the Covered Area that permit growth of vegetation have historically supported rangeland activities and secondarily irrigated agriculture. Dunelands dominated by active sand dunes and sand sheets are not suitable for cultivation, and though they may be used as rangeland, these soils support limited growth of forage for livestock (NRCS 1999, 2020a). These soils are used for recreation and energy development activities (NRCS 1999, 2020a).

Soils. Purchaser’s Operations shall be conducted in a manner to minimize adverse impact to soils. In areas where soil is particularly susceptible to erosion, Purchaser will take reasonable and practicable measures to retain road surfaces and prevent the gullying of roads and skid trails, and stabilize barren areas created by landings or other actions that expose the soil. The Officer in Charge may suspend operations in whole or in part for such periods as may be deemed necessary to avoid damage when ground conditions are unfavorable.
Soils. Lessee shall follow the “double ditch” construction method for pipeline construction outside of a paved roadway, segregating top soil removed, and replacing top soil above sub-soils. Lessee shall implement measures to avoid re-deposited topsoil being compacted to any degree greater than existed prior to construction. Lessee will reseed or resod, as applicable, the Project Area, and replace shrubs and other plantings so that, upon completion of construction, the Lease Area has an appearance and contains plantings similar to those that existed prior to construction, to the degree reasonably practicable.
Soils. The District shall furnish the services of geotechnical engineers or consultants when such services are reasonably required and deemed necessary by Architect or as required by local or state codes. Such services shall include test borings, test pits, soil bearing values, percolation tests, air and water pollution tests, ground corrosion and resistivity tests, including necessary operations of determining subsoil, air and water conditions, with reports and appropriate professional recommendations.
