AEP – Smith Mountain Lake Conservation Easement

Hurt & Proffitt performed a boundary replacement survey of approximately 5,000 acres near the Smith Mountain Lake Hydro Plant. All existing monuments were recovered and/or established, iron pins were set at corners where there were no monuments or where monuments were disturbed, and all boundary lines were flagged and painted. This property, currently leased by DGIF, was put into a Conservation Easement. It was the largest parcel put into a conservation easement in 2008. Hurt & Proffitt provided all boundary surveying.
