Land Surveying for USFWS

Location: Area 4 – Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware Client: U.S. Department of the Interior – Fish & Wildlife Services

JMT provided the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service with a variety of surveying services.

JMT was selected by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to provide surveying services at various national fish hatcheries, national wildlife refuges, other U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service facilities and on private lands as directed by the Contracting Officer in Area #4 (Northeast), which consists of the states of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia.

JMT surveying personnel provided a variety of surveying services, which included establishing horizontal coordinates (North American Datum 1983) in the relevant State Plane Coordinate System using GPS surveys, deed and plat research in the appropriate courthouse or via the internet, right-of-way research from the various Department of Transportation Offices and Counties, deed plotting and boundary/tract line re-establishment, monumentation of tract boundary corners with the proper U.S. Fish and Wildlife aluminum drive-in monuments and caps, tract descriptions and plats, and GPS surveys, including differential, static, fast-static and RTK. Our staff worked closely with each specific Refuge Manager, coordinating survey crew access to the site and with adjoining land owners. In some instances, access to specific areas was only possible by boat. In each instance, JMT crews performed the specific surveying services without disruption to the Refuge operations.
