•4 hydrologic soil groups (HSG-A, HSG-B, HSG-C and HSG-D) are identified
•HSG-A

–Low run off potential and high infiltration rates
–Deep, well drained sandy/gravelly soil
–Water transmission rates: >0.3 inch/hr.

•HSG-B

–Moderate infiltration/runoff rates
–Moderately deep and moderately draining soils
–Moderately fine to moderately coarse soil texture
–Water transmission rates: 0.15 to 0.3 inch/hr.

•HSG-C

–Low infiltration rates and relatively high runoff rates
–Soils include layer impeding downward movement of water
–Moderately fine to fine soil texture
–Water transmission rates: 0.05-0.15 inch/hr.

•HSG-D

–High runoff potential and very low infiltration rates
–Clay soils with high swelling potential, or soils with clay pan or clay layer at or
near the surface, or shallow soil over nearly impervious material
–Water transmission rates: 0.0 to 0.05 inch/hr
