Found it at 16:50, 26 Jan., 2003. This monument was found still set in the center of the 14-inch round concrete monument however grading along the banks of the canals have displaced the monument and its setting to the bottom of the earthen canal. The horizontal position of the station may still be obtained by the reference monuments if they are still in position. They were not found at this time.

The posted coordinates were taken at the bottom of the canal at the present position of the monument. They were obtained by a 6.5 minute occupation with 7 strong satelittes and 1 WAAS satellite.

Benchmark detail.
