We conducted surveys associated with the Wells Hydroelectric Dam Relicensing project, an effort to retrace 100 miles of boundary that define the limits of the hydroelectric project, as well as the retracement of 64 PLSS fractional sections adjoining the project.
The purpose of the project is to recover and establish/reestablish operating limits of the dam on the Columbia, Methow, and Okanogan Rivers near Brewster, WA. The survey required the following:
- Recovery of cadastral and project monumentation
- Analysis and determination of cadastral and project boundaries
- Bathymetric surveys along both banks of 50 miles of the Columbia River, 17 miles of the Okanogan River, and two miles of the Methow River
- Property acquisition support, document management and GIS data set compilation for in-house use by the District, and preparation of 70 Exhibit G Project Boundary Maps exceeding FERC requirements
