Palo Wetlands Survey
The Natural Resources Conservation Service was a program to restore wetlands. As a part of that program, they obtained easements to control and limit the use of wetland properties—one of which was a valuable 500-acre property southeast of Palo, Iowa, lying along the Cedar River. They called on Brain to address the job and do it right.
Brain Engineering was retained to provide the surveying of the boundary, set monuments along the boundary, and as a result, clearly display the boundaries of the easement. Since the river has meandered over the years in its location, the survey also required our skills in observing riparian rights rules.
The project was finished to the utmost satisfaction of all parties.
