Soil Survey of Nantucket County Massachusetts
The following map unit description is from the published "Soil Survey of Nantucket County, Massachusetts"

Du-Dumps. This unit consists of undulating areas that are irregular in shape and that range from 2 to 15 acres.

Dumps are low areas and excavations that have been filled with trash. The fill material includes sand, gravel, rock, wood, and bricks. Some areas are covered with a thin layer of soil material. Dumps are typically devoid of vegetation, but some older areas have scattered bushes, grass, and weeds.

The characteristics of these areas are so variable that onsite investigation is needed to determine the potentials and limitations for any proposed land use. Capability subclass is not assigned.
