Buncombe County is the third North Carolina County to be studied for potential and known landslide hazards. North Carolina Geological Survey staff in Swannanoa (Asheville Regional Office) are heading up this multi-year effort to map known and potential landslide locations in western North Carolina.

hard-copy maps through our Geological Survey Shop.
