Fauquier County has a wide variety of bedrock types and extends across 3 major geologic provinces: the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Culpeper Triassic-Jurassic Basin and the Northern Piedmont. The variety of bedrock types and provinces leads to a wide variety of soil types, many with unique properties that require specific management practices or pose specific challenges in land management. The Fauquier County Soil Survey, and other types of soil maps, provide maps showing the soil types and information on soil properties and management practices. The County Soil Scientist assists citizens, officials and county staff in interpreting the maps and associated information as well as field evaluation of soils and soil mapping.
