New Guidelines for Survey Monuments

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released a new policy to reduce a common hazard to migratory birds and other wildlife that can become trapped and die in uncapped pipes on public lands. When fully implemented the new guidance could save more than 100,000 birds a year. Certified Federal Surveyors (CFedS) can help reduce this common hazard to migratory birds and other wildlife during their conduct of cadastral services on Federal interest lands. The replacement of open-pipe survey markers with wildlife-safe survey markers or remediation of open-pipe survey markers will reduce the chances of wildlife deaths. Noting open-pipe survey markers on Standards for Boundary Evidence (SBE) Certificates is another way CFedS can help implement this new policy.
