Protection of Survey Monuments

Last Updated: 7-17-2017Print page

A Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) permit is required (WAC 332-120-040 and RCW 58.04.015) for any work that would remove, adjusts, destroy or otherwise make a Survey Point or Monument no longer visible or readily accessible. In addition, coordination with SPU Survey Unit regarding street monument will be required prior to any work impacting existing survey point or monuments in the right-of-way. For more information on monuments, refer to the Seattle Public Utilities Survey website (especially Client Assistance Memo CAM 1401 Notes 4 and 21 and CAM 1402).
