• Yes. An original United States Geological Survey (USGS) map(s) must accompany every nomination. You can obtain a USGS map directly from the United States Geological Survey.
• Use a 7.5 or 15 minute series USGS map. Do not submit fragments or copies of USGS maps because they cannot be checked for UTM references.
• On the map, in pencil only, locate either the single UTM reference point (for properties less than 10 acres), the polygon and its vertices encompassing the boundaries (for properties of 10 or more acres), or the line and reference points indicating the course of the property (for linear properties). Also, identify the name of the property, the location of the property, and the UTM references entered in Section 10.
• If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your NHL Reviewer.
