Landslide surveys underway PDF Print

In 2004, a landslide brought about by Hurricane Ivan killed four people, including a pregnant woman in Macon County.

The data will help planners decide how to engineer roads and housing developments in order to protect both lives and property. Macon and Buncombe counties are also being surveyed.
