Fort Peck sits in northeastern Montana along the Missouri River. The Fort Peck Reservoir was created from the construction of a 3.8 mile-long dam across the Missouri River in the mid 1930’s. The adjacent lake boasts more than 1,520 miles of shoreline, longer than the California coast.
DJ&A teamed with a local surveying firm to deliver a large, multi-year project to provide cadastral and property boundary surveys for approximately 400 cabin sites on CORPS-acquired lands and BLM-withdrawn lands surrounding the reservoir. DJ&A served as project lead for surveying and mapping, and was responsible for BLM records research. DJ&A prepared legal boundary survey documents for real property transfers to transfer current lease lots from Federal ownership to private.
- Completed 25 miles of roadway & utility easement surveys (GPS)
- Completed lot boundary surveys (GPS) for 420+ parcels
- Conducted elevation surveys to determine maximum reservoir pool flowage easement elevation line (GPS)
- Coordinated with BLM in development of supplemental plats on public lands for preparing land transfer patents
- Completed PLSS cadastral surveys and section subdivisions (16 Sections)
- Provided sanitation tract boundary and topographic surveys (GPS)
- Conducted horizontal (Montana State Plane NAD83) and vertical (USACE local dam elevation) control surveys (GPS)
- Established property corner monumentation for 2,500+ locations
