lost in the above period or a loss
of 200 feet of prime water-front
land. Soil types are being
studied to determine if some
soils eroded more easily than
others. The specialist are also
studying the effectiveness of

measures such as bulkheads,
jetties, and vegetation. .

that shore erosion is probably
the largest source of soil erosion
in the Albemarle Area. "It is
also destroying some of our
most valuable land. No doubt
with increased pressures on our
water-fronts for homes and
recreation areas, the shore
erosion problem in going to
become even more acute."
