Do you rehab monuments?
- I recently: Fd bent 3/4″ conduit. I pulled it out, straightened it, which broke it. I drove both pieces down the on top of each other.
Went home, did calcs. Concluded that the original marker was a 3/8″ rebar. About 1/2′ away. There were local witness objects. I wound up concluding that the 3/8 reb had been destroyed. And the conduit was just a marker set by a landowner, to help him not loose his corner. I set my rebar 1/2 ft from the conduit, and put the conduit back as a marker.
2.) Next job, there were some subdivision markers set in the c/l of an old dirt road. It had been chip and sealed 2x. I fd the 1/2″ rebar 8″ dp. In the road. Most had their tops bent over. I added either a 1/2″ pipe, or 3/4″ pipe, over the rebar to bring the monument to the surface. (After straightening) Then filled the hole with cool mix asphalt. About 20-30 minutes per monument. But they are rehabilitated. I fd 1/2″ pins on back corners, that were bent over. Obviously, other surveyors had been by there. I pulled these, straightened, and reset them. Everything fit record by less than a tenth. (A miracle!) But, the original surveyor did good work. And I found all needed corners.
Question: do you rehab markers, or leave them bent?
And, what is your logic?
