Metaline Falls Flume Survey

The Metaline Falls Flume survey project was a large lot segregation of a 13 acre parcel near the town of Metaline Falls just South of the Sullivan Creek crossing east of town. The project was unique in the fact that much of the property has not been surveyed since the 1950s and certain areas had not been surveyed since the 1900s. Combine that with the over 700 feet of vertical relief, which was literally vertical in some places, and you have the makings of a very interesting survey project. The area was covered in dense trees and underbrush, which combined with the near vertical site, made for some very difficult field traverses.
