Surveying

May 1, 2008


I think that my official title at my place of employment is Project Engineer, but I got to go surveying a bit today because I needed an as-built drawing of a site with an accurate bottom elevation for a particular pond that has a significant depth of stormwater in it already. When the official company surveyors did the as-built surveying, they forgot to bring a boat and waders, so my boss found me a boat and I went to the field to help finish the job. On the downside, I couldn’t get the boat to go very fast. On the upside, I managed not to tip the boat over (like the previous time that I was in a small boat) and I should have the numbers that I need.
