Abstract
Soil erosion has been more destructive in the southern Piedmont than in many other parts of the United States. Gullied and abandoned fields are evidence of very severe damage, but the greater losses caused by sheet erosion may remain unnoticed.
To obtain definite information regarding the condition of the land, which can be correlated with the reservoir survey, a soil conservation survey of the watershed of University Lake was made in 1937. The survey furnishes a definite physical basis for planning improved land use and control of soil erosion.
