characterized this region's soils. The elevation in the Gulf Coast region was dissected by the stream and rivers flowing into the Gulf of Mexico. Deposition
Gulf Coast Prairie and Marshes
have soil like acid sands, sandy loams,and clay.
(Sandy loams and clay occur
in river bottoms). WED Affects Erosion Surface Water
Most of the water supplies used
are from rivers rather than
reservoirs. (The rivers supply fresh water so that supports

of ground water, but it has some problems
due to a phenomenon known as
"subsidence." Ground water is used to surface water supplies.
