Section 680. Monumentation requirements

11 AAC 53.680. Monumentation requirements

(a) In a subdivision with five or fewer lots, the monuments required to be established at controlling exterior corners include each angle point, each point of curvature, and any point on the subdivision exterior boundary that is more than 1,320 feet from a monument. Each monument at each controlling exterior corner must consist of a minimum 5/8-inch by 24-inch rebar with a minimum two-inch diameter aluminum cap. For monuments that are

(1) set by a survey under this subsection,

(A) the surveyor shall stamp the cap with the corner identification, year set, and surveyor's registration number, and shall orient this information so that it may be read when the reader is facing north; and

(B) if both the cap and the pipe are nonferrous metal, the surveyor shall permanently attach additives with magnetic qualities at both the top and bottom of the monument; or

(2) recovered, the surveyor shall

(A) certify that the existence of controlling exterior corners of the subdivision has been established in the field; and

(B) show the current condition, description, and markings of all recovered monuments.

(b) In a subdivision of more than five lots, each corner to be monumented must include each angle point and each point of curvature in the boundary of each lot in the subdivision. The surveyor shall monument each interior corner with a minimum 5/8-inch by 24-inch rebar with a plastic or aluminum cap bearing the surveyor's registration number.

(c) A surveyor who finds monuments and accessories in a disturbed condition shall make sufficient ties to existing monuments of record to properly control the field location of the parent parcel boundaries. The surveyor shall return disturbed monuments and accessories to the original position and condition as nearly as possible or replace them so as to perpetuate the position.
