CobbFendley was chosen by the TEP to assist in the renewal of the easements and ROW across tribal land due to the expiration date contained in the recorded grant. This project began approximately nine miles north of New Mexico State Route 53 near the New Mexico/Arizona border and continued both north and east for approximately 125 miles terminating at the San Juan generating station.

The project consisted of preparing easement survey plats in accordance with BIA standards for the renewal of approximately 125 miles of ROW along an existing power transmission line. Our team developed easement exhibits for the ROW renewal depicting sections of the existing transmission line corridor which travels through numerous townships. The plats encompassed all Navajo and Government Trust Lands, Navajo Nation Tribe Fee Lands, and incorporated exhibits and legal descriptions for 11 allotments and two communication sites. This project was completed on time and within budget.

  • Stamped legal descriptions and exhibits.
