Revised Application to Remove or Destroy Monuments

This announcement is to let you know that we have revised the Application To Remove Or Destroy A Survey Monument. The most up-to-date versions of the Application, Completion Report form, and instructions can be found on the PLSO website at www.dnr.wa.gov/public-land-survey-office, about two-thirds of the way down the page under the heading, "Removal of Survey Markers".


This latest revision includes check boxes for quarter sections, range W or E, and a "comments" area. Our aim is to make the form easier to use in order to capture the necessary information in an efficient manner. 

Please continue to send Applications and Completion Reports to:
