Grading Permit Plans in Pennsylvania: Can a surveyor calculate and sign off on Infiltration Beds and trenches?

I am a licensed surveyor in Pennsylvania and work for a full service Civil Engineering Company.  I have been getting a lot of requests for grading permit plans.  More and more townships are requiring Infiltration beds for roof drainage discharge.  Also, Infiltration trenches along driveways.  The calculations are pretty straight forward.  Can a PA licensed land surveyor sign off on a house permit plan containing these drainage features?  I have always had an in house licensed engineer perform…See More

Should I try to collect for a longer period - maybe even 2 hours or more and…

5800 static collection to TSCe

Posted on October 16, 2016 at 7:04pm 4 Comments

I have an old 5800 unit that does not have internal memory capabilities.  I have collected static post processing data with a TSCe data collector.  Is there a way to process the raw or job file from the TSCe to a dat file to upload to OPUS?   If I had the t0# file from the 5800 I could download the dat file to be post processed.  But without being able to record directly to the 5800 I am stuck. Unless there is way to process the raw, job, or maybe I am missing something.  I know this is old…
