FLORIDA GENERAL SOIL ATLAS
WITH INTERPRETATIONS
FOR REGIONAL PLANNING DISTRICTS III & IV


This series of Atlases was prepared and printed by the Department of Administration, Division of State Planning, based
on soil maps and interpretations developed by the U. S. Soil Conservation Service as a part of the National Cooperative Soil
Survey program. The General Soil Maps in this atlas were developed by generalizing detailed soil surveys or by field
reconnaissance in those counties without detail surveys. This Atlas contains General Soil Maps for the counties listed below:

A General Soil Map is most useful as a tool in broad scale planning especially in the early stages of planning land use and
development. Generalized soils information is useful in determining an area's general suitability for various land uses; or for
locating and planning areas for more detailed soil studies.

Each delineation on the General Soil Map represents a group of soils that occur together in nature to form a distinctive
landscape, called a 'Soil Association'. A soil association consists of one or more major soils and at least one minor soil, and is
named for the major soils. The General Soil Map provides an overview of the extent and location of the major soil
associations in the county. The user must recognize that each delineation on the map represents the dominant condition. The
association may contain soils different from those shown in the legend with qualities causing them to differ in use suitability
or limitations.
The General Soil Map is not a substitute for the detailed soil survey which should be used for the more specific or
detailed planning and site selection. Those counties indicated by an asterisk (*) have detailed soil maps available.
The General Soil Maps in the Atlas are interpreted for a number of selected uses in the Table opposite each
map. The soils in the associations are rated individually, with the chief limiting factor noted below the degree of
limitation. Interpretive materials presented in the Tables are discussed below.




Degree and Kind of Soil Limitation Affecting Selected Uses
This part of the Table interprets the soils as to their degree and kind of limitation for sanitary facilities, community
development, water management, and recreation. The evaluation of soils, expressed in terms of degree of limitation, are
predictions of the behavior of soils under defined conditions. The interpretations apply to the soils in their natural state and
not to areas that are altered by cut or fill operations.
Ratings summarize the limitation of the soils, and key phrases indicate the kind of limitations and soil features.
Soil limitations are indicated by the ratings: slight, moderate, and severe. Slight means soils properties are generally
favorable for the rated use, or in other words, limitations are minor and easily overcome. Moderate means that some soil
properties are unfavorable but can be overcome or modified by special planning and design. Severe means soil properties are
so unfavorable and so difficult to correct or overcome that major soil-reclamation, special designs, or intensive maintenance is
required. For some uses, the rating severe means one or more soil properties are so unfavorable for a particular use that
overcoming the limitations is difficult, costly and not commonly practical.
These are not suitability ratings, but are actually measures of 'degree' or 'intensity' of soil limitations, restrictions, or
hazards. Most soils are suitable for all uses if provisions can be made to overcome or eliminate the problems.
Many soils that have a high water table have severe or very severe limitations in their natural condition. These same
soils, when drained artificially, may only have a slight limitation. Modern equipment and knowledge make it possible to
overcome most of the limitations of soils for many urban and recreational uses. The degree of the limitation and the location
of the soils will determine the practicability of developing the soils.


Interpretations of Soils for Sanitary Facilities
The following uses are grouped under sanitary facilities: septic tank absorption fields, sewage lagoons, and sanitary
landfill.
Septic tank absorption fields are subsurface systems of tile or perforated pipe that distribute effluent from a septic tank
into natural soil. The soil material from a depth of 18 inches to 6 feet is evaluated. The soil properties considered are those
that affect both absorption of effluent,,and construction and operation of the system. Properties that affect absorption are
permeability, depth to water table or rock, and susceptibility to flooding. Slope is a soil property that affects difficulty of
layout and construction, and also the risk of soil erosion, lateral seepage, and downslope flow of effluent.
Sewage lagoons are excavated ponds constructed to hold sewage within a depth of 5 to 10 feet long enough for bacteria
to decompose the solids. A lagoon has a nearly level floor and is protected from flooding by an encircling embankment of
compacted soil material. Site properties that affect the construction and function of lagoons are permeability, organic matter,
slope, and depth to bedrock. The soil properties that affect the embankment are the engineering properties of the
embankment material, as interpreted from the Unified Soil Classification, and the amounts of stones, if any, that influence
the ease of excavation and compaction of the embankment material.
Sanitary landfill, is a method of disposing of refuse. The waste is spread in thin layers, compacted, and covered with soil
throughout the disposal period. Landfill areas are subject to heavy vehicular traffic. Some soil properties that affect
suitability for landfill are ease of excavation, hazard of polluting ground water, and trafficability. Ratings apply only to a
depth of about 6 feet, and therefore limitation ratings of h or moderate may not be valid if excavations are to be much
deeper than that. For some soils, reliable predictions can be made to a depth of 10 or 15 feet, but in most instances geologic
investigations will be needed below about 6 feet.
Sanitary landfill (trench type) is a trench in which refuse is buried daily, or more frequently if necessary. The refuse is
covered with a layer of soil material at least 6 inches thick, usually soil excavated in digging the trench. When the trench is
full, a final cover of soil material at least 2 feet thick is placed over the landfill.

Interpretations of Soils for Community Development
The following uses are grouped under community development: shallow excavations, dwellings with no basements,
small commercial buildings, and local roads and streets.
Shallow excavations are those that require excavating or trenching to a depth of less than 6 feet: for example,
excavations for pipelines, sewer lines, phone and power transmission lines, basements, open ditches, and cemeteries. Desirable
soil properties are good workability, moderate resistance to sloughing, gentle slopes, absence of rock outcrops or big stones,
and freedom from flooding or absence of a high water table.
Dwellings, as rated in the Table, are not more than three stories high and are supported by foundation footings placed
in undisturbed soil. The features that affect the rating of a soil for dwellings are those that relate to capacity to support load
and resist settlement under load, and those that relate to ease of excavation. Soil properties that affect capacity to support
load are wetness, susceptibility to flooding, density, plasticity, texture, and shrink-swell and consolidation potential. Those
that affect excavation are wetness, slope, depth to bedrock, and content of stones and rocks.
Ratings for small commercial buildings are based on the undisturbed soils that are used to support building foundations.
Emphasis is on foundations, ease of excavation for underground utilities, and corrosion potential of uncoated steel pipe. The
undisturbed soil is rated for footing foundations for buildings less than three stories high or foundation loads not in excess of
that weight. Properties affecting load-supporting capacity and settlement under load are wetness, flooding, texture,
plasticity, density, and shrink-swell and consolidation behavior. Properties affecting excavation are wetness, flooding, slope,
and depth to bedrock. Properties affecting corrosion of buried uncoated steel pipe are wetness, texture, total acidity, and
electrical resistivity.
Local roads and streets, as rated in the Tables, have an all-weather surface expected to carry automobile traffic all
year. They have a subgrade of underlying soil material; a base consisting of gravel, crushed rock, or soil material stabilized
with lime or cement; and a flexible or rigid surface, commonly asphalt or concrete. These roads are graded to shed water and
have ordinary provisions for drainage. They are built mainly from soil at hand, and most cuts and fills are less than 6 feet
deep.
Soil properties that most affect design and construction of roads and streets are load supporting capacity and stability
of the subgrade, and the quality and quantity of cut and fill material available. The AASHO (American Association of State
Highway Officials) and Unified classifications of the soil material, and also the shrink-swell potential, indicate traffic
supporting capacity. Wetness and flooding affect stability of the material. Slope, depth to hard rock, content of stones and
rocks, and wetness affect ease of excavation and amount of cut and fill needed to reach an even grade.












Interpretations of Soils for Water Management
The following uses are grouped under water management: embankments, dikes, and levees; ground-water fed
excavated ponds; drainage; and irrigation. Ratings are not given for drainage and irrigation. For these uses the soil features not
to be overlooked in planning, installation, and maintenance are given.
Embankments, dikes, and levees require soil material resistant to seepage and piping and of favorable stability,
shrink-swell potential, shear strength, and compactability. Presence of stones or organic material in a soil is among factors
that are unfavorable.
A ground-water fed excavated pond is a body of water created by excavating a pit or dugout into a ground-water
aquifer. The assumption is made that the pond is properly designed, located and constructed, and that the water is of good
quality. Properties affecting aquifer-fed ponds are the existence of a permanent water table, permeability of the aquifer, and
properties that interfere with excavation--stoniness and rockiness.
Pond reservoir areas are affected primarily by soil properties that affect seepage rate. Features and qualities that affect
this use are permeability; depth to water table; depth to bedrock or other unfavorable materials that allow seepage; soil slope
(influences storage potential); and stability of embankment material.
Drainage is affected by such soil properties as permeability, texture, and structure; depth to claypan, rock, or other
layers that influence rate of water movement; depth to the water table; slope; stability in ditchbanks, susceptibility to stream
overflow; salinity or alkalinity; and availability of outlets for drainage.
Irrigation of a soil is affected by such features as slope; susceptibility to stream overflow, water erosion, or soil blowing;
soil texture; content of stones; accumulations of salts and alkali; depth of root zone; rate of water intake at the surface;
permeability of soil layers below the surface layer; amount of water held available to plants; and need for drainage, or depth
to water table or bedrock.



Interpretations of Soils for Recreation
The following uses are grouped under recreation: camp and picnic areas, playgrounds, and paths and trails.
Camp areas are used intensively for tents and small camp trailers and the accompanying activities of outdoor living.
Little preparation of the site is required other than shaping and leveling for tent and parking areas. Camp areas are subject to
heavy foot traffic and limited vehicular traffic. The best soils have mild slopes, good drainage, a surface free of rocks and
coarse fragments, freedom from flooding during periods of heavy use, and a surface that is firm after rains but not dusty
when dry.
Picnic areas require attractive natural or landscaped tracts. These areas are subject to heavy foot traffic. Most of the
vehicular traffic, however, is confined to access roads. The best soils are firm when wet but not dusty when dry; are free of
flooding during the season of use; and do not have slopes or stoniness that greatly increase cost of leveling sites or of building
access roads.
In the Tables, camp and picnic areas are rated together since most soils have the same rating and limitations for these
uses.
Playgrouds are used for baseball, football, badminton, and similar organized games. Soils suitable for this use need to
withstand intensive foot traffic. The best soils have a nearly level surface free of coarse fragments and rock outcrops, good
drainage, freedom from flooding during periods of heavy use, and a surface that is firm after rains but not dusty when dry. If
grading and leveling are required, depth to rock is important.
Paths and trails are used for local and cross-country travel by foot or horseback. Design and layout should require little
or no cutting and filling. The best soils are at least moderately well drained, are firm when wet but not dusty when dry; are
flooded not more than once during the season of use; have slopes of less than 15 percent; and have few or no rocks or stones
on the surface.


Suitability of Soil as Source of Selected Material and Features Affecting
Use
In the Tables, the soils are rated as to their suitability as sources of three materials: topsoil, sand, and roadfill.
Topsoil is used for topdressing an area where vegetation is to e established and maintained. Suitability is affected
mainly by ease of working and spreading the soil material, such as preparing a seedbed; natural fertility of the material, or its
response of plants when fertilizer is applied; and absence of substances toxic to plants. Texture of the soil material and its
content of stone fragments are characteristics that affect suitability. Also considered in the ratings is.the damage that will
result at the area from which topsoil is taken. Wetness is considered a limitation, since it can be a hazard to the removal of the
material.


Sand is used in great quantities in many kinds of construction. The ratings indicate where to look for probable sources.
A soil rated as a good or fair source of sand generally has a layer at least 3 feet thick, the top of which is within a depth of 6
feet. The ratings do not take into account thickness of overburden, location of the water table, or other factors that affect
mining of the materials, nor do they indicate quality of the deposit.
Roadfill is soil material used in embankments for roads. The suitability ratings reflect: (1) the predicted performance of
soil after it has been placed in a properly compacted embankment and provided with adequate drainage, and (2) the relative
ease of excavating the material at borrow areas. Soils are rated as good, fair, or poor. In some counties, wetness is not
considered in rating the soils for roadfill. This would eliminate many soils that would make good roadfill, except for the
wetness factor. Soils that have a wetness hazard for this use are footnoted on the Tables.



Soil Potential for Agriculture
In the Tables under soil potential for agriculture, the soil potential for pine woodland, cropland, and improved pasture
is given. The potential is shown as high, moderate, low, or very low. The soil potential as shown assumes high level
management, except for pine woodland, that includes liberal applications of fertilizers and lime when needed and adequate
water control. The soil potential for pine woodland refers to planted slash pine under a good forest land management
program, except as footnoted. High potential indicates that the soil has the potential to produce high yields under high level
management. Moderate potential indicates that the soil has the potential to produce moderate yields under high level
management. Low potential indicates that the soil has limitations that are economically feasible but are quite difficult to
overcome; expected yields are usually low. Very low potential indicates that the soil is unsuited for the use; limitations are
too difficult or costly to overcome.
Some of the soil limitations that lower the soil potential for one or more of the agricultural uses are difficulty to clear,
droughtiness, excess humus, excess salt, rapid percolation, poor outlets, productivity, rooting depth, tidal flooding, and
wetness.



Capability Grouping
Also shown on the Tables under soil potential for agriculture is the capability unit for all the major soils in each soil
association. This is a capability grouping that shows, in a general way, the suitability of soils for most kinds of field crops.
The groups are based on the limitations of the soils when used for field crops, the risk of damage when they are used, and the
way they respond to treatment. The grouping does not take into account major and generally expensive landforming that
would change slope, depth, or other characteristics of the soils; does not take into consideration possible but unlikely major
reclamation projects; and does not apply to horticultural crops, or other crops requiring special management.
Those familiar with the capability classification can infer from it much about the behavior of soils when used for other
purposes, but this classification is not a substitute for interpretations designed to show suitability and limitations of groups of
soils for range, forest trees, or engineering.
In the capability system, all kinds of soils are grouped at three levels: the capability class, subclass, and unit. These are
discussed in the following paragraphs.
CAPABILITY CLASSES, the broadest groups, are designated by Roman numerals I through VIII. The numerals
indicate progressively greater limitations and narrower choices for practical use, defined as follows:
Class I soils have few limitations that restrict their use.
Class II soils have moderate limitations that reduce the choice of
plants, or that require moderate conservation practices.
Class III soils have severe limitations that reduce the choice of
plants, require special conservation practices, or both.
Class IV soils have very severe limitations that reduce the choice of
plants, require very careful management, or both.
Class V soils are not likely to erode but have other limitations,
impractical to remove, that limit their use largely to
pasture, range, woodland, or wildlife.
Class VI soils have severe limitations that make them generally
unsuited to cultivation and limit their use largely to
pasture or range, woodland, or wildlife.









Class VII soils have very severe limitations that make, them unsuited
to cultivation and that restrict their use largely to
pasture or range, woodland, or wildlife.
Class VIII soils and landforms have limitations that preclude their
use for'commercial plants and restrict their use to
recreation, wildlife, water supply, or to esthetic
purposes.

CAPABI LITY SUBCLASSES are soil groups within one class; they are designated by adding a small letter,e, w, s, or c.
to the class numeral, for example, IIIw. The letter w shows that water in or on the soil interferes with plant growth or
cultivation (in some soils the wetness can be partly corrected by artificial drainage);e shows that the main limitation is risk of
erosion unless close-growing plant cover is maintained; s shows that the soil is limited mainly because it is shallow, drought,
or stony; and c used in only some parts of the United States, shows that the chief limitation is climate that is too cold or too
dry.
In Class I there are no subclasses because the soils of this class have few limitations. Class V can contain, at the most,
only the subclasses indicated by w, s, and c because the soils in Class V are subject to little or no erosion, though they have
other limitations that restrict their use largely to pasture, range, woodland, wildlife or recreation.
CAPABI LITY UNITS are soil groups within the subclasses. The soils in one capability unit are enough alike to be suited
to the same crops and pasture plants, to require similar management and to have similar productivity and other responses to
management. Thus, the capability unit is a convenient grouping for making many statements about management of soils.
Capability units are generally designated by adding an Arabic numeral to the subclass symbol, for example, IIIlw-9 or
IVw-2. Thus, in one symbol, the Roman numeral designates the capability class, or degree of limitation; the small letter
indicates the subclass, or kind of limitation, as defined in the foregoing paragraphs; and the Arabic numeral specifically
identifies the capability unit within each subclass.
The capability units shown on the Tables for the soils are tied to a Statewide legend for capability units; thus, the units
on Table 1 are not numbered consecutively for any one county, such as, IIIw-1, IIlw-s, etc.

Suitability of Soil as a Habitat for Wildlife
Soils directly influence kinds and amounts of vegetation and amounts of water available, and in this way indirectly
influence the kinds of wildlife that can live in an area. Soil properties that affect the growth of wildlife habitat are: (1)
thickness of soil useful to crops, (2) surface texture, (3) available water capacity, (4) wetness, (5) surface stoniness or
rockiness, (6) flood hazard, (7) slope, and (8) permeability of the soil to air and water.
In Table 1 the soils are rated according to their suitability or potential as habitat for three kinds of wildlife--openland,
woodland, and wetland wildlife. The ratings indicate relative suitability or potential for producing the habitat. A rating of
good means the habitat for the kind of wildlife can be easily created, improved, and maintained. Few or no limitations affect
management in this category and satisfactory results are expected when the soil is used for the prescribed purpose.
A rating of fair means the habitat for the kind of wildlife can be created, improved, or maintained in most places.
Moderate intensity of management and fairly frequent attention may be required for satisfactory results, however.
A rating of poor means the habitat for the kind of wildlife has rather severe limitations to its creation. Habitats can be
created, improved, or maintained in most places, but management is difficult and requires intensive effort.
A rating of very poor means the habitat for the kind of wildlife has very severe limitations to its creation and that
unsatisfactory results are to be expected. It is either impossible or impractical to create, improve, or maintain habitats on soils
in this category.
Openland wildlife are birds and mammals that normally live in meadows, pastures, and open areas where grasses, herbs,
and shrubby plants grow. Quail, doves, meadowlarks, field sparrows, cottontail rabbits, and foxes are typical examples of
openland wildlife.
Woodland wildlife are birds and mammals that normally live in wooded areas of hardwood trees, coniferous trees, and
shrubs. Woodcocks, thrushes, wild turkeys, deer, squirrels, and raccoons are typical examples of woodland wildlife.
Wetland wildlife are birds and mammals that normally live in wet areas, marshes, and swamps. Ducks, geese, rails, shore
birds, herons, minks, and muskrats are typical examples of wetland wildlife.

I/ The overall rating for the association is based on the rating for the dominant soil (soil that makes up the
greatest percentage of the association) or soils if more than one soil has the same rating.

2/ Others represents minor soils in the association. No one of the individual minor soils makes up as large a
percentage of the association as the major soil with the lowest percentage. The percentage in parentheses
following each of the soil associations represents the percentage of the county covered by that association.

3/ The percentages are estimates and are not based on measured acreage.

4/ High level management is assumed~which includes water management.

5/ The material itself is considered to be FAIR or GOOD for the intended use, but wetness may be a limitation
in obtaining it.

6/ Rating is for hard wood trees.

I/ The overall rating for the association is based on the rating for the dominant soil (soil that makes up the
greatest percentage of the association) or soils if more than one soil has the same rating.

2/ Others represents minor soils in the association. No one of the individual minor soils makes up as large a
percentage of the association as the major soil with the lowest percentage. The percentage in parentheses
following each of the soil associations represents the percentage of the county covered by that association.

3/ The percentages are estimates and are not based on measured acreage.

4/ High level management is assumed which includes water management.

5/ The material itself is considered to be FAIR or GOOD for the intended use, but wetness may be a limitation
in obtaining it.

6/ Rating is for hard wood trees.

1/ The overall rating for the association is based on the rating for the dominant soil (soil that makes up the
greatest percentage of the association) or soils if more than one soil has the same rating.

2/ Others represents minor soils in the association. No one of the individual minor soils makes up as large a
percentage of the association as the major soil with the lowest percentage. The percentage in parentheses
following each of the soil associations represents the percentage of the county covered by that association.

3/ The percentages are estimates and are not based on measured acreage.

4/ High level management is assumed which includes water management.

5/ The material itself is considered to be FAIR or GOOD for the intended use, but wetness may be a limitation
in obtaining it.

6/ Rating is for hard wood trees.

1/ The overall rating for the association is based on the rating for the dominant soil (soil that makes up the
greatest percentage of the association) or soils if more than one soil has the same rating.

2/ Others represents minor soils in the association. No one of the individual minor soils makes up as large a
percentage of the association as the major soil with the lowest percentage. The percentage in parentheses
following each of the soil associations represents the percentage of the county covered by that association.

3/ The percentages are estimates and are not based on measured acreage.

4/ High level management is assumed which includes water management.

5/ The material itself is considered to be FAIR or GOOD for the intended use, but wetness may be a limitation
in obtaining it.

6/ Rating is for hard wood trees.

I/ The overall rating for the association is based on the rating for the dominant soil (soil that makes up the
greatest percentage of the association) or soils if more than one soil has the same rating.

2/ Others represents minor soils in the association. No one of the individual minor soils makes up as large a
percentage of the association as the major soil with the lowest percentage. The percentage in parentheses
following each of the soil associations represents the percentage of the county covered by that association.

3/ The percentages are estimates and are not based on measured acreage.

4/ High level management is assumed which includes water management.

5/ The material itself is considered to be FAIR or GOOD for the intended use, but wetness may be a limitation
in obtaining it.

6/ Rating is for hard wood trees.

1/ The overall rating for the association is based on the rating for the dominant soil (soil that makes up the
greatest percentage of the association) or soils if more than one soil has the same rating.

2/ Others represents minor soils in the association. No one of the individual minor soils makes up as large a
percentage of the association as the major soil with the lowest percentage. The percentage in parentheses
following each of the soil associations represents the percentage of the county covered by that association.

3/ The percentages are estimates and are not based on measured acreage.

4/ High level management is assumed which includes water management.

5/ The material itself is considered to be.FAIR or GOOD for the intended use, but wetness may be a limitation
in obtaining it.

6/ Rating is for hard wood trees. 7/ Rating is for Choctawhatchee sand pine.

1/ The overall rating for the association is based on the rating for the dominant soil (soil that makes up the
greatest percentage of the association) or soils if more than one soil has the same rating.

2 / Others represents minor soils in the association. No one of the individual minor soils makes up as large a
percentage of the association as the major soil with the lowest percentage. The percentage in parentheses
following each of the soil associations represents the percentage of the county covered by that association.

3/ The percentages are estimates and are not based on measured acreage.

4/ High level management is assumed which includes water management.

5/ The material itself is considered to be FAIR or GOOD for the intended use, but wetness may be a limitation
in obtaining it.

6/ Rating is for hard wood trees.
