Highlight

Section 32-15-06, N.D.C.C., permits entry upon the land to make examinations, surveys, and maps thereof, which is preliminary to the condemnation action itself.

Placement of survey monuments on land for as long as three years is not an innocuous entry and seriously impinges upon or impairs the rights of the landowner to the use and enjoyment of the land. A physical occupation of this duration goes beyond the minimally invasive examination and testing permitted under N.D.C.C. § 32-15-06.
