Long Description:
I recovered this U.S. Bureau of Reclamation benchmark in good condition. This BM is one of four located at Keswick Dam. This BM is monumented on top of a concrete sidewalk, flush with the surface at the NE corner of an expanded sidewalk and just SW of a guard rail and approximately in the direct middle of the dam road. The BM contains the elevation stamping of '596.244' AND '66' and no other designation stamping. This BM is not listed in the NGS database. My posted coordinates will place you very close to this mark.
