Soil Map!

This is a Soil Map that shows what type of soil is found in the area. For this area the soil is classified as Chehalis Silty Clay Loam with the taxonomic name of Fine-Silty, mixed, super active, mesic cumuli cultic Haploxerolls. The parent material for this soil is recent moderately fine textured alluvium derived from mixing sources. This soil is common for the area, because it used to be a river, and over time sediments built up to form the soil that is in the area now.
