      Crawford County Soil Survey. The Soil Conservation Service (now the Natural Resources Conservation Service) published the Crawford County Soil Survey in Soil survey reports were completed for most all counties, not only in Pennsylvania, but in the United States, during the ’s. Geologic units in Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania Casselman Formation (Pennsylvanian) at surface, covers 29 % of this area Cyclic sequences of shale, siltstone, sandstone, red beds, thin, impure limestone, and thin, nonpersistent coal; red beds are associated .

      In Crawford County it comprises square miles, or , acres. The area boasts some of the most dramatic topography in the county. The hillsides are forested and the streams clean and clear. The majority of the Crawford County’s Exceptional Value and High Quality streams are found in this watershed, and it is a fly fisherman’s paradise. The map above is a Landsat satellite image of Pennsylvania with County boundaries superimposed. We have a more detailed satellite image of Pennsylvania without County boundaries. Pennsylvania Counties and County Seats.

      Western Middle, and Southern Anthracite Fields as shown on Figure The anthracite coal fields contain approximately 95% of the remaining identified anthracite and semianthracite resources in the United States (Averitt, ). The anthracite fields are of Pennsylvanian age and are time equivalent to the bituminous fields of western Size: 1MB. The province is most extensive to the north, west and south of the St. Francois Mountains, and relatively small on the east side. Groundwater resources in the Salem Plateau groundwater province are the most extensive in the state. About percent of Missouri’s potable groundwater is in this region, a volume of about trillion gallons.
