Would someone like to help me do a level run next August from the five adjusted marks that are within 0.55 miles and get 'ELEVATIONS' 'DUMPED' on the 1933 RESETs? kayakbird

Not sure why both are 'Destroyed' - however, I wouldn't report a good recovery on SK0181(the bolt) without actually seing it.

 

Interesting result when typing in SK0183...

SK0180 STEAMBOAT LAKE CAP was destroyed in 1933 when STEAMBOAT LAKE RESET (SK0183) was set. It was a pipe cap marked P.B.M. 1898. kayakbird, the photos you have are of the 1933 reset. Different mark.

 

SK0181 STEAMBOAT LAKE (NGS calls it STEAMBOLT LAKE BOLT) was considered destroyed by MnDOT, and belatedly marked as such. Probably because it's part of a cap-and-bolt pair, and the cap was reset. Maybe this is what Dave Zenk means by elevations that should have been dumped to its reset. The bolt was reset too, but the datasheet did not reflect that.

 

SK0183 STEAMBOAT LAKE RESET is the cap you photographed. Set in 1933. Maybe not blue booked? Odd result when looking it up at NGS. Somebody took photos in July 2012.

 

SK0184 STEAMBOAT LAKE BOLT RESET is not published despite having NGS PID. No geodetic control.

 

You're looking for Cass County Sheet 4.

 

I too am not sure why you reported your assumption that the mark was there.

I have ran across several US Corp of Engineers cap/bolt pairs that have been reset like the one that Mike has pictured. It appears that the cap (and corresponding subsurface bolt) have not been physically replaced per se........but just stamped over using the same cap in place. These marks haven't been moved, just basically releveled and stamped with the date that the new measurements were taken, and thus gotten a new PID.

 

Mikes pic is of P.B.M. 1898, that was then overstamped with the 1933 Reset when the USC&GS used it in that year.

 

I am always envious of the old historical marks he finds and wish I could accompany him on one of these trips.. B)

msrubble,

 

I would like to figure out what happened to the DATASHEETS for SK0183 STEAMBOAT LAKE CAP (the 1933 RESET)

and SK0184 STEAMBOAT LAKE BOLT? SK0183 is in the 2000 GC snapshot (see below). I am positive that the

apparently undistrubed stand pipe with cap was there 5 Aug 2009 and 4 Aug 2011. Note consistent calls below.

 

It is not documented but I wondering if the 1933 RESET of SK0183 was no more than re-plumbing the

standpipe over the underground mark - see SK0177 WYE CAP and SK0102 BIGOSH CAP RESET below.

 

Also, to me anyway, it would have been logical for the 1959 crew, that must have run levels between

the WILKERSON (SK0527) complex about a half mile north and BAY (SK0536) 4.6 miles south, to have tied to this one as they went by (RR is now a state recreation trail).

 

Thanks, LSUFan, kayakbird

msrubble & all,

 

After checking further down the line (pulled up and scrolled through the 234 MRC points

that GSAK filters out, plus SK0180 STEAMBOAT LAKE which does not) I am beginning to think

that it was a clerical error that placed three of the thirteen points that MTDOT destroyed

in 2012 into that status.

 

These three (SK0180, SK0181 and SJ1179) have a lengthy caution note (see below) which states that

'NO PHYSICAL RECOVERY WAS DONE---', (thus no cap or bolt to submit with a NGS recovery).

 

Portion of note:

NO PHYSICAL RECOVERY WAS DONE. THE PURPOSE OF THIS RECOVERY IS TO DISCUSS FINDINGS FROM RESEARCH OF HISTORICAL DATA.-----CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN LOOKING AT HISTORICAL AND PRESENT VERTICAL ELEVATIONS FOR THESE MARKS.

 

Interestingly, SJ1180 BLACKBERRY BOLT also had this note attached but was not destroyed. There is

a call with SJ1179 BLACKBERRY CAP

 

95ca94f2-be47-4120-9b49-2c38036cc74d.jpg

'AND 1.2 FEET SOUTHWEST OF MRC PBM BLACKBERRY BOLT'

that indicates that the underground portion of this Cap & Bolt pair is actually offset

from the surface mark. Anyone want to met me there with probes & shovels the first week of August?

 

Of the remaining MRC points that MNDOT destroyed in 2012, six have recent GOOD/POOR histories and four have NOT FOUND.

No description reason was given for any of these.
