Alluvium and Lacustrine are rock formations that contain an aquifer sufficient for domestic farming.  It also is excavated for topsoil.  Alluvium and Lacustrine has the potential for development.  It is limited only to flooding and any recreation facilities should be designed to withstand periodic inundation.
