Dennis Dodson

Professional Land Surveyor

“I want to enjoy what I do and provide quality work to all of my clients”
When Dennis Dodson set out to run his own business and purchased Garner Land Surveying in 1998, that quote summed up his expectations and has served the business well over the years. We really want to do the best job possible for you, in the most cost-effective manner. A lean experienced staff and personal attention to details assures you will get a professional job every time. Now after all those years he wanted to retire and sell his business. He will continue on working part time for the WW Surveying.

Joel Schock

Survey Technician L.S.I.T.

Joel graduated from College of the Canyons with an associate degree in Land Surveying. He is officially an LSIT (land surveyor in training) and he worked for Dodson Land Surveying, now WW Surveying, for a year and a half. I love working at WW surveying because of the variety of work that we get to do which always keeps the job interesting.
