In the 1990s, North and South Carolina began to discuss how to accurately determine their jurisdictional borders in order to properly regulate and provide services for the development that was rapidly occurring along their common boundary near Charlotte and the ridgeline boundary in the mountains between Tryon and Brevard.

In 2000 they agreed it was in their mutual interest to work together and through a Request for Qualifications process they selected two initial contractors. CESI was selected to provide surveying, marking, and mapping services along the 1815 ridgeline boundary from the intersection of the ridgeline and the 1785 Cherokee Indian Boundary 27 miles east to a point at Grassy Gap near Hogback Mountain.

Following the completion of this portion of the state boundary, CESI was selected as one of the firms to provide services for the 1772 line from the forks of the Catawba River west to Tryon, the 1762 survey and 1772 resurvey from the Catawba River to the Old North Corner, the 1764 line from the Old North Corner to the 1737 bend point, and the 1737 line from the bend point to the Lumber River.
