Field Indicators of Hydric Soils in the United States has been developed by soil scientists of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS); the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE); the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); various regional, state, and local agencies; universities; and the private sector. The editors recognize that this guide could not have been developed without the efforts of many individuals. Included in this publication are the hydric soil indicators approved by the NRCS and the National Technical Committee for Hydric Soils (NTCHS) for use in identifying, delineating, and verifying hydric soils in the field. Also included are indicators designated as test indicators, which are not approved for use but are to be tested so that their utility can be determined.
