A detailed description of (some of) the possible soil value
Maps are coded according to the (previous page) Soil
The color code green indicates areas that are "generally
suitable" for: (for example) septic tank fields, yellow areas
are "probably suitable" for septic fields, but may "cost more" to overcome
existing soil limitations, and red areas are "unsuitable" for (septic tank
||Septic Tank Fields
Potential restrictions for locating a septic tank absorption field.
(Green areas used in example)
Green = YES, I can locate a septic field here.
Yellow = probably NO, I shouldn't locate
a septic field (there are some unfavorable limitations.)
Red = NO, I should not locate a septic field
here because there are many unfavorable limitations.
Estimates the time free water will remain in soil after saturation
has been reached.
No color = No problem with wetness.
Green = Generally, no particular wetness problem.
Yellow = A slight wetness problem.
Red = There is a severe problem with wetness.
The risk of (probable annual) flooding as a result of stream overflow.
No color = No flood risk.
Slight = Some slight risk. (not on this map)
Red = A very high risk of (annual) flooding.
||Depth to Watertable
Depth to Watertable or the depth at which there is (seasonal high)
The depth ranges are:
No Color = Greater than 5 feet to water.
Blue = 3 to 5 feet to water.
Dark Blue = Less than 3 feet to water.
