Soil Descriptions Wauberg sand – This nearly level, poorly drained soil is mostly in large areas on prairie in the southern part of the county. Slopes are nearly smooth to slightly concave and range from 0 to 2 percent. Lochloosa fine sand, 5 to 8 percent slopes- This sloping, somewhat poorly drained soil is in relatively small areas on sharp breaking slopes and along long, narrow slopes of the upland. The areas are mostly irregular or elongated in shape and range from about 10 to 50 acres. Jonesville-Cadillac-Bonneau complex, 0 to 5 percent slopes- This complex consists of small areas of nearly level to gently sloping, well drained Jonesville and Cadillac soils and moderately well drained Bonneau soils.

Limitations for use as septic tank absorption fields are severe because of the water table, which restricts drainage during wet periods. The effluent can be forced to the surface by hillside seepage as it moves upward and laterally through the upper layers of the soil. Jonesville-Cadillac-Bonneau complex, 0 to 5 percent slopes- The soils have slight limitations for dwellings, small commercial buildings, and local roads and streets. During excavation for building foundations, large boulders may have to be removed. There are severe limitations for use as absorption fields for septic tanks because of the shallow depth to the underlying limestone. Contamination of ground water by seepage is a possibility. The limestone is somewhat porous and, in some places, cavernous....
