Expansive soils

Unlike earthquakes, floods, and landslides, few people are aware of expansive soils, yet this hazard renders substantial damage amounting to billions of dollars. Expansive soils affect almost every state, including Arkansas. In Arkansas, certain soils that have an expansive clay component are susceptible to causing damage to property.

There are no expansive soil case studies reported at this time. If you are concerned that expansive soils have caused damage to your home or property, contact the Arkansas Geological Survey for more information.
