For more than 20 years, Guida has provided on call right of way engineering, land surveying and mapping services to IRWD and numerous improvement projects. Services have included both design and construction survey support for infrastructure pipelines, sewer and water pipelines, reservoirs and other facility improvements. Design services include GPS and other control surveys, topographic surveys and mapping, boundary surveys, cadastral and title research for right of way engineering support, preparation of legal descriptions and plats, and monumentation preservation. Construction services include constructability reviews, construction computations, construction staking for pipelines, appurtenances and new improvements, as-built surveys, earthwork quantities, monumentation, and the preparation of corner records. Recent projects include:

  • San Joaquin Marsh Redevelopment: Provided horizontal and vertical controls, topographic surveys, aerial photogrammetric mapping, construction computation and staking and client coordination for the redevelopment of this environmentally sensitive area. This was an environmentally sensitive project due to the yearly migration of birds nesting and sensitive plants had to be protected in place. Field modifications had to be made to accommodate the existing condition. Topographical surveys of the removal area were provided, and the quantity of removal was calculated and used to verify contractor payments. We provided aerial topographic mapping and control for the final.
  • Shady Canyon Road Infrastructure Pipelines: Provided construction computations and surveys, horizontal and vertical control, monument preservation and perpetuation, pre and post construction corner records and coordination for approximately 1.5 miles of sewer, reclaimed water and domestic water pipelines.
  • Whiting Ranch Zone 9 Reservoir: Provided right of way retracement, construction computations and staking, and client coordination for a new steel water reservoir and the associated pipelines.
