Martis Fire Boundary Relocation

Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest

ANDREGG GEOMATICS was awarded a contract by the USDA Forest Service to provide land and engineering surveys in the Intermountain Region, USDA, Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, and Northwest Nevada Zone.  The indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract required Andregg to perform cadastral surveys, topographic surveys, section subdivision, rights of way determination, retracement, monumentation, PLSS and National Forest Boundary and Wilderness Boundary Surveys, Record of Survey Plats and Computer Aided Drafting.  The first task order issued by the Forest Service involved a relocation survey for the Martis Fire Boundary in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.  The project area is approximately 23 miles southwest of Reno, Nevada and is located along the Nevada and California state lines.  The task, which is to be completed within a stringent schedule, involves surveying mountainous terrain with timber and brush burned over in the 2001 Martis Fire. Using GPS surveying techniques, ANDREGG's staff recovered or restored all land survey corner monuments in their original positions prior to the Martis Fire so that Federal and private lands could be legally delineated and a Record of Survey Plat could be filed.
