This past year ODNR/DSWC completed a study on the affects of land management practices on soil and water quality. The Muskingum Soil and Water Conservation, located in Zanesville, OH, protects and improves Zanesville soil and water resources. A government agency, the Soil and Water Conservation District provides resources on conservation and management for soil, water, and other natural on: Underwood Street, Zanesville, , OH.   Project Methods A laboratory will be maintained in order to provide soil characterization data which are an essential ingredient for the completion of a high quality soil survey of the entire state. The genesis of Ohio soils will be examined in field and laboratory studies by ordination of soil forming factors or with dynamic equilibrium models oriented toward process - response mechanisms.

The general soil map, which is the color map immediately following the general soil map units, shows the survey area divided into groups of associated soils called general soil map units. This map is useful in planning the use and management of large areas. A State Soil Geomorphic Data Base (STATSGO) is available for the county. This data base consists of a soils map at a scale of , and descriptions of groups of associated soils. It replaces the general soil map published in older soil surveys. The map and the data base can be used for. Thinking about soils in Northeast Ohio. Soil scientists have identified more than different types of soil in Ohio, varying according to composition (proportion of sand, silt and clay particles), structure, thickness of layers and depth to bedrock, fertility, pH, drainage, slope and other factors. The differences can matter a lot. The particular soil under your feet can determine what you. This appendix provides hydrologic soil group (HSG) values for undisturbed Ohio soils and predictable HSG values for Ohio soils that are altered by construction practices. Hydrologic soil groups are used to assign a Curve Number (CN) when performing runoff cal-culations or in hydrologic models. Soil map units have been assigned to the four File Size: KB.
