TO ALL BRITISH COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYORS

Re: Integrated Survey Area (ISA) Official Plans and Coordinates

New NAD83 (CSRS) consolidated coordinate listings have been issued for the following integrated survey areas and are now on record in the appropriate land title offices and municipalities. The listing includes previous outstanding replacement projects that were awaiting the completion of the NAD83 (CSRS) refresh adjustment.

11 Duncan
12 Penticton
13 Delta
14 Coquitlam
17 Victoria
18 Richmond
19 Vernon
21 Central Saanich
25 Burnaby
27 Rossland
28 Campbell River
31 Vancouver
37 Port Alberni
40 Colwood
43 Ladysmith
45 Langley City

New official integrated survey area plans for Delta, Colwood and Langley City were filed in the appropriate land title office. New plans for the remainder of the areas listed will be filed in the appropriate land title office when completed.

Survey plans within integrated survey areas must be prepared using NAD83 (CSRS) derived grid bearings. There will be a grace period until December 31, 1998 for surveys which are largely already completed. We urge surveyors to use NAD83 (CSRS) on all plans prior to December 31, 1998 where possible.

Yours sincerely,

Chuck Salmon
Surveyor General
