USDA Soil Survey was used for a larger area which encompasses the site we are focused on. Due to limited information on the specific location we are including information on the soil types most likely to be found on site. These include B277A - Greenwood -Greenwood ponded, complex, 0 to 1 percent slopes, and B278A - Greenwood - Lobo complex, 0 to 1 percent slope. The Greenwood complexes comprise most of the site, and these soils are composed of peat and mucky peat horizon with a mean air temperature of 36 - 46 degree fahrenheit according to USGS Soil Survey. Depth to the water table is 0 inches and the parent material of these soils is Herbaceous organic material.
