Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Chapter 332-120 WAC, Survey monuments—Removal and [or] destruction.
Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Remove reference to the Washington coordinate system datum NAD 83 as listed in WAC 332-120-040(2). The reference is outdated and needs to be corrected to be the Washington plane coordinate system as established and designated by chapter 58.20
Reasons Supporting Proposal: The statute for the Washington plane coordinate system was modified by HB 2860 during the 2020 legislative session. The old NAD 83 datum was removed and replaced with new language referencing the national geodetic survey's national spatial reference system.
Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.
