Soils and Sediments

Soils with lots of fine sediments and clays can become saturated very quickly in a rain storm. Water that cannot soak into the soil runs over the surface towards streams. Fine silts are easily picked up by running water. Silt can take many weeks to settle out of water running in streams. This can affect the transparency of the water. Sandy soils can absorb rain water faster and groundwater can move through the soil faster.
