PLYMOUTH COUNTY, MASSACHUSETTS SOIL SURVEY UPDATE
Woodbridge Soils: Very deep, moderately well drained soil formed in compact glacial till. Woodbridge soils are on the smooth top slopes, upper side slopes and toe slopes of glaciated hills.

Unit (s): 310A, 310B, 310C, 311A, 311B, 311C
Classification: Coarse - loamy, mixed, mesic, Aquic
Drainage Class: Moderately well drained.
Parent Material: Dense glacial till.
Permeability: Moderate in the solum, slow or very slow in the dense substratum.
Available Water Holding Capacity: Moderate.
Soil Reaction: Very strongly acid to moderately acid throughout. .
Depth to Bedrock: Greater than 65 inches.
Seasonal High Watertable: Depth: 1.5 to 3 feet.
Months: November to May.
Hydrologic Group: C.
Hydric Soil: No (may have hydric inclusions).
Flooding/Ponding Potential: Frequency and Type: None.
Potential Inclusions: Scituate, Birchwood, and Newfields soils are similar inclusions. Poorly drained Norwell, Sippican, and Ridgebury soils are along drainageways. Well drained Paxton, Poquonock and Montauk soils are on convex slopes.
Agriculture: Map units 310A and 310B is a prime farmland soil. Map units 310C, 311A, 311B and 311C are important farmland soils. Map units 310C and 311C are highly erodible map units.
Woodland: Well suited for woodland.
Development: Major limitations related to slow permeability in the dense till substratum and seasonal high watertables. Large surface and subsurface stones and boulders may interfere with excavation. Erosion hazards are likely during development, measures should be taken to prevent erosion.
