Central Valley Chapter
California Land Surveyors Association

Promoting the professional practice of land surveying in the California Central Valley.
Serving the greater Merced, Stanislaus and San Joaquin County Area."


The San Joaquin County Liaison Committee

The San Joaquin County Liaison Committee works with the San Joaquin County Surveyor’s Office, San Joaquin County Public Works Department, San Joaquin County GIS Department, and other San Joaquin County departments on issues that are of concern to the land surveying community. These issues include monument preservation and storage, land surveying control, and indexing of land surveying and property documents.

The current committee members are Kevin Genasci and Landon Blake.

The committee is working with San Joaquin County on the following issues at this time:

  1. Monument preservation on chip seal projects within San Joaquin County.
  2. Maintenance of the index for filed survey maps within San Joaquin County.
  3. Use of the San Joaquin County Monument Preservation Fund.

Monument Preservation Fund

The committee has prepared a proposed scope-of-professional services for property corner monument replacement using the County's monument preservation fund. This document will be provided to the San Joaquin County Surveyor's Office for comment. After the committee and the County Surveyor's Office have agreed on the final scope-of-professional services, the committee will work to have the County use monument preservation funds to pay for corner restoration and replacement under the scope-of-professional-services.

We've created a preliminary list of candidate corners for improvement with monument preservation fund money:

Township Range Section Corner Description
T2S R9E 16 West 1/4 Section Corner
T2S R9E 16 Northwest Section Corner
T1S R8E 7 South 1/4 Section Corner
T1S R7E 11 South 1/4 Section Corner
T1S R7E 14 West 1/4 Section Corner
T1S R7E 7 Southwest Section Corner
T1S R7E 9 Southwest Section Corner

You can contact committee members or use the San Joaquin County Monument Preservation Fund Candidate Corner Submittal Form to submit additional corners to the list.
