Using Soil Survey Information: Conservation Effects Assessment Project
Soil Scientist/Modeling Unit

Carrie-Ann Houdeshell presents the purpose, goals, and future work of the Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP). The project is a multi-agency effort initiated in 2003 to estimate the environmental benefits of conservation practices at national and regional levels. CEAP was created to document conservation efforts to produce cleaner water and to enhance soil quality. When it comes to soils, priority acreage most in need of treatment are identified using criteria such as sediment loss from water erosions, nitrogen loss, and phosphorus loss.
