dc.description.abstract Groundwater affects the development of soil in many ways. Due to the natural relationship between soil and groundwater this study was aimed at determining whether soils affect the water table depth, episaturation occurs, and hydric soils exist at the study site. The three soils studied include Pewamo (poorly drained), Blount (somewhat poorly drained) and Glynwood (moderately well drained).Water table data were collected in 1994 and 1995 at the Hults Environmental Learning Center in Albany, Indiana. Soil, by itself, was not found to be significant in affecting water table depth whereas position (horizon), soil by position and Julian date were all found to be highly significant. Soils were affected by existing drainage tile found in Pewamo that acted to lower the water table. Blount and Glynwood were found to have a period of episaturation whereas Pewamo was found to be endosaturated. The soils were not found to be hydric based on the depth to the water table only.
