Found as described and recovered in fair condition.

Well, the orange witness post blends in well with the telephone pole. We missed this driving by the first time.

The cover was left partially open. We opened the cover all the way to discover the rod was completely covered by sand and dirt. We removed the dirt and sand to uncover the rod. It looked to be OK.

Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1985 by NGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1985 IN WAUPACA. IN WAUPACA, AT THE INTERSECTION OF FULTON STREET AND HILLCREST DRIVE, 37.8 M (124.0 FT) NORTH OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE STREET, 16.7 M (54.8 FT) NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER OF A DRIVEWAY LEADING TO 700 HILLCREST DRIVE, 7.8 M (25.6 FT) NORTHWEST OF THE CENTER OF THE DRIVE, AND 0.9 M (3.0 FT) SOUTHWEST OF UTILITY POLE NUMBER 53EE5 WITH 2 GUY WIRES. NOTE--ACCESS TO DATUM POINT IS HAD THROUGH A 5-INCH LOGO CAP. THE MARK IS 0.9 METERS SW FROM A WITNESS POST THE MARK IS ABOVE LEVEL WITH THE DRIVE.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
