184 UNIT DESCRIPTIONS: Artificial Fill, Undocumented (Afu): Locally derived sandy silt and silty sand, locally with clay and varying amounts of gravel and man-made debris. Abundant concrete rubble, in places exceeding 24-inches in diameter, observed in the backfill of Moreno Creek drainage in trenches FT-1 and FT-2. Localized seepage along root traces observed in backfill along southern sidewall of trench FT-1 and near storm drain inlet of trench FT-2. In Cross-Sections Modern and Holocene Alluvium in Historical Channel of Moreno Creek (Qw): Silty sand to clayey sand grading to sand at depth, with minor gravel and thin gravel beds; light yellowish brown, brown to dark reddish brown; massive to crudely stratified; small fragments of asphalt observed locally in CB-3. Holocene Alluvium of Benedict Canyon Wash (Qal): Sandy clay to clayey sand grading laterally to silty sand to sand with silt; coarsening downward near the thalweg of the channel to sand with gravel, sandy gravel or gravelly sand; brown, dark yellowish brown, dark brown to reddish brown; locally laminated; gravel consist of fine- to coarse-grained subangular to subrounded fragments of siltstone and slate; few to common manganese oxide and iron oxide stains; few roots. Pleistocene Alluvium of Benedict Canyon Wash (BCW1): Sandy clay, clayey sand, sand with clay, and silty sand with clay, grading laterally to silty sand and sand with silt; near the channel centerline, deposit coarsens downward to gravelly sand to clayey sand with gravel; dark yellowish brown, brown, dark brown to reddish brown; mottled; locally gleyed; slightly moist to moist; massive to thinly laminated; few to many scattered gravel that consist of subangular to subrounded and tabular fragments of siltstone, slate and weathered basalt. Terrestrial deposit consisting of fluvial, alluvial fan, and mudflow sediments emanating from the Santa Monica Mountains via Benedict Canyon Wash and its tributaries. Pleistocene Alluvium of Benedict Canyon Wash (BCW2): Sandy clay, clayey sand and silty clay grading laterally to silty sand to sand with silt; with lenses and interbeds of sandy gravel; coarsening downwards to a basal channel deposit of sand, gravelly sand and gravel; dark grayish brown, reddish brown, very dark brown, and dark yellowish brown; locally mottled and/or gleyed; oxidation-reduction banding; iron oxide and manganese oxide stains common on rock clasts and along basal channel contact; gravel consist of fine- to medium-grained subrounded to subangular fragments of siltstone, slate, basalt and quartz. Unit is characterized by moderate to well-developed paleosols with many moderately thick to thick clay films on ped faces and moderate to strong angular blocky soil structure. Distinctive erosional contact with underlying Cheviot Hills deposits. Pleistocene Cheviot Hills Deposits (CHD): Sandy clay, clayey sand, and silty clay; with thin silty sand and gravel layers and beds; brown, reddish brown, brown, and grayish brown; locally gleyed; moist to wet along sand beds; manganese oxide stains, streaks and nodules; iron oxide stains on rock fragments, and forming oxidation-reduction banding; gravel consist of subrounded to subangular fragments of siltstone and slate. At depth, unit includes abundant calcium carbonate in the form of specks, filaments, horizontal layers, and coatings on ped faces; color changes to grayish brown, gray, and blue green reminiscent of the Lomita Marl; iron oxide staining along layers and locally on ped faces. Unit has been modified by soil-forming processes, with pedogenic characteristics, including clay films on ped faces and moderate to strong angular blocky soil structure, observed at several intervals, including directly at or below its contact with the overlying Benedict Canyon Wash deposits. Terrestrial deposit consisting of fluvial and alluvial sediments derived from the San Pedro Formation deposited over a long period of time, with depositional hiatuses that allowed for soil development. This unit was exposed at the surface for thousands of years before it was buried by the Pleistocene alluvium of Benedict Canyon Wash. CaCO3 stringers and along soil faces as vertical deposits Silty SAND (SM) CaCO 3 nodules SAND (SP) Denotes poor to well developed soil structure Geologic contact, dashed where approximate, querried where uncertain Rock Clasts Quaternary San Pedro Formation (Qsp): Sand with scattered gravel; few silty to clayey laminations; yellow, olive brown to reddish orange brown; loose to hard; dry near upper contact, becoming moist to wet at depth; sand fraction consists of fine to coarse, well-rounded quartz grains; scattered bi-valve shell fragments. Transitional terrestrial to marine unit deposited in a wave-dominated (beach) environment.
