JEA HydroTech is following the Federal Communications Commission's review of LightSquared plans for a wireless broadband network to provide internet access nationwide. According to the Coalition to Save Our GPS, dated July 2011, part of its process will be “to transmit radio signals that would be one billion or more times more powerful than the signals that GPS receives – causing severe interference impacting hundreds of millions of GPS users. This includes receivers used by U.S. federal agencies, state and local governments, first responders, airlines, civil engineering, construction and surveying, agriculture, other industries, and everyday consumers in their cars and hand-held devices.”

Preliminary testing has already proven the harmful effects caused by transmissions from the LightSquared system over existing GPS signals. We will continue to monitor the developments in this continuing discussion. Licensed professionals in the firm have provided their concerns via the comment forum on the FCC website. With implications to the future of land surveying and the potential conflicts such an enterprise could cause, we foresee problems on the horizon which could profoundly affect our industry.

JEA HydroTech strives to improve our processes in preparing Designated Pooling Units, Surface Use Plats and other associated Well Plats for our gas and oil clients. We are involved in ongoing exploration and drilling in the Barnett, Haynesville and Eagleford shales of Texas.

Our vast experience in dealing with the difficulties encountered in the preparation of complex urban well sites has proven to be of great value to our clients. We strive to meet the changing demands due to technological advances resulting in reduced production cost for clients. The coordination among title companies, land men and other consultants has been a common thread in our dealings with these clients. Our timely response and informed approach remain our strongest assets on these projects.

September 2011

JEA HydroTech continues to focus on Land Development throughout the State of Texas with emphasis in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. We have updated our standards to meet those adopted in 2011 by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM).

The minimum standard detail requirements for ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys are designed to create a uniform national standard and provide information for title insurance companies along with legal protection for both the surveyor and the client. These requirements provide a clear and convenient process for a client to order a survey of land and be assured of the accuracy of the survey and the information shown. Specifications for accuracy and requirements listing the minimum information that must be shown on any ALTA survey generally exceed the minimum standards set by the State of Texas. Surveys prepared by an RPLS must conform to both ALTA standards and minimum requirements as set forth by the state.
