Currituck County Soil Survey

Fieldwork for our Soil Survey was performed between 1973 -1979. In 1980 the soil names and descriptions were approved. Unless otherwise indicated, all references stated in the Soil Survey Publication are referring to soil conditions in 1979.

This soil survey was made cooperatively by the:

  • Soil Conservation Service
  • North Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Community Development
  • North Carolina Agricultural Research Service
  • North Carolina Agricultural Extension Service
  • Currituck County Board of Commissioners.

It is part of the technical assistance furnished to the Albemarle Soil and Water Conservation District.
