Soils in the low-lying areas of each site are classified by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) as parts of the Blucher-Cole Complex and Rodeo Clay Loam, Humaquepts seeped and Xerothents fill soils. These are typically low-gradient (between 0 and 15%) soils developed on alluvial fans and valley bottoms. These are generally composed of poorly drained silt and clay loams and are derived from weathered sandstone, shale and granite. The BlucherCole, Humaquepts and Xerothents are all hydric, meaning that they meet the broad requirements of a wetland soil. Soils in the drier and steeper areas are classified as part of the Cronkhite-Barnabe Complex and the Tamalpais-Barnabe variant very gravelly loams. These are found in the hillier uplands on slopes ranging between 30 and 50%. They are composed of a well-drained loamy mixture of weathered sandstone, shale and/or chert for approximately the top four feet of the soil profile until bedrock is encountered. Erosion of hillside soils is problematic in the area, and several trails, roadways, and parking areas show signs of soil erosion. The following is a discussion of specific soil types and descriptions for each of the equestrian sites, as well as information regarding erosion potential, liquefaction potential, slope failure and expansive soils.
The existing Golden Gate Dairy facility and proposed Lower Redwood Creek sites are located approximately 0.6 miles from each other, both situated on Redwood Creek. Each one consists of an area of relatively flat lowlands associated with the creek and its tributaries, bounded by steeper topography above. Soil types as classified by the NRCS are the same for each site and thus will be combined in the discussion that follows.
The lower-elevation, riparian soils are classified as part of the Blucher-Cole Complex, 2-5% slopes. Soils of this type are commonly found on alluvial fans and basin/valley bottomlands. Parent materials are typically alluvium (e.g., earth materials that have been transported and deposited by water) derived from sandstone, granite and shale. These soils are comprised of silt and clay loams that are somewhat poorly drained. The T-factor is an estimate of the maximum average annual rate of soil erosion by wind and/or water that can occur without adversely affecting conditions necessary for sustaining vegetation (NRCS 2010). T-factor ratings range from one to five, with one considered an unsustainable amount of loss and five being relatively stable. The Blucher-Cole complex soils are classified by the NRCS as a ―5‖, indicating a relatively low susceptibility of damage by erosional forces. These soils are also classified as hydric, defined as forming under conditions of saturation or ponding long enough during the growing season that anaerobic conditions exist in the upper parts and one of the primary indicators of a wetland (NRCS 2007). Hydric soils do not necessarily confirm the presence of a wetland environment; other conditions, such as hydrology and hydrophilic (―water-loving‖) vegetation are also necessary for accurate wetland delineation. Determination of wetland conditions requires an on-site analysis.
