Cadastral Survey Program


In 1982, Navajo Nation established a Memorandum of Agreement jointly with US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and US Department of Interior Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to complete cadastral survey on the Navajo Nation. In coordination with the BIA, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah BLM office, legal surveys are ongoing to identify section corners, quarter corners and set brass caps at ½ mile intervals. The monuments are used to control surveys to locate geographic positions; maintenance and perpetuation of the existing Pubic land Survey System (PLSS); and necessary required retracement, resurveys, and surveys of areas requested by the Navajo Land Department and BIS.

OBJECTIVE:
To establish Survey lines on the ground and corners are monument at half mile intervals using stainless steel posts or brass tablets.

PRIORITY PROJECT:
To establish new survey points in un-surveyed areas of the Navajo Indian Reservation.
