There are many different types of geological formations that can be found on the watershed of Floyds Fork.  With each different geological formation, there are specific characteristics that determine what can and cannot be built on them.  Limiting factors for geological formations are steep slopes, shallow depth to bedrock, sinkholes, cesspools, impermeability, susceptibility to erosion, and high water table and/or subject to periodic flooding.
