  1. Soils in West Central Florida Playing in the sandbox Mary Barnwell SOS 5716 Environmental Pedology April 1, 2010

  2. Watershed Map – Coastal Rivers Basin Site 2 – Hernando County Gulf Of Mexico Site 1 – Pasco County

  3. Physiographic Region Site 2 – Hernando County Gulf Of Mexico Site 1 – Pasco County

  4. Pasco County Conner Preserve Brooksville Ridge Coastal Rivers Basin Soil Order - Spodosol Spodic Horizon OchricEpipedon Study Site 1

  5. SITE 1 Flat terrain in uplands Elevation 75 feet NVGD Former pine flatwoods Logged, plowed, converted to pasture Also heavily limed prior to 2006

  6. .. . • Adamsville fine sand • Smyrna fine sand • Basinger fine sand depressional • Cassia fine sand, 0-5% slope • 52 Samsula muck

  8. Proximity to Cypress Creek Wellfield Influenced by drawdown of water table Tampa Bay Water – Permitted to withdrawal 90,000,000 mgd

  9. Redoximorphic Features concentrations/depletions Pore linings Gleyed soils - 10YR 7/3 Water table observed at 67 inches

  10. Study Site 2 Hernando County Annutteliga Hammock Northern Gulf Coastal Lowlands Coastal Rivers Basin Soil Order –Entisol Ochric Epipedon

  14. Lamellae are present at about 70-72 inches and greater. Color 10YR 5/8 (yellowish brown). Bands are 1-4 inches in length and very narrow. This feature is consistent with Candler fine sand (5-8% slope) soil description: “between depths of 72-80+ inches is pale brown fine sand that has lamellae of strong brown loamy sands about 1/16 to 1/8 inch wide and 1-4 inches long.” Soil Survey of Hernando County (1977)

  15. Other Features of Interest • Fossorial Burrowing Animals • Tortoises • Pocket gophers & mice • Snakes • Beetles & Ants Several chunks of charcoal found at about 57 – 63 inches; Legacy of long fire history. Krotovina? • Soil Surface Disturbance Evident • ATV trails and mounding of soils • Turpentining & harvesting
