We worked for an Engineering firm who was designing 6 miles of sewer main. We contacted the gas company and asked for their maps in the area. It became a real battle and they said they could not release due to Homeland Security regulations.
If you set a stake or a spike, you are penetrating the surface of the ground and technically need dig-safe to mark the area. I almost went that route, but they gave me their maps before I resorted to requiring the 6 miles of road to be flagged within 72 hours.

“Removal or altering of survey stakes on a construction
this one could be any number of sub contractors on the job.

I’ve never thought about vandalism of surveyors stakes as “terrorist activity”.
Seems like a bit of overreaction here by this Bureau of Justice Assistance.
On the other hand, some of our personnel work at one of the most secure (non-military) construction sites in America, yet equipment is stolen all the time.

Admitting that could lead to a very expensive lawsuit, regardless of what the injured party had done..
