The Certified Survey Map shall show correctly on its face, in addition to the information required by § 236.34 of the Wisconsin Statutes, the following:
A. 
Existing Features. All existing buildings, watercourses, drainage ditches, and other features pertinent to proper land division.

F. 
Existing and Proposed Contours. Existing and proposed contours at vertical intervals of not more than two feet. Elevations shall be marked on such contours based on National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (mean sea level). This requirement may be waived if the parcel(s) created are fully developed.
G. 
Floodplain Limits and Contours. Floodplain limits and the contour lines lying a vertical distance of two feet above the elevation of the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood, or where such data is not available, five feet above the elevation of the maximum flood of record.

To accomplish this purpose, a minimum of one test per three acres shall be made initially. The results of such tests shall be submitted along with the Certified Survey Map.

The exact grid bearing and distance of such tie shall be determined by field measurements, and the material and Wisconsin state plane coordinates of the monument marking the relocated section or quarter corner to which the map is tied shall be indicated on the map. All distances and bearings shall be referenced to the Wisconsin Coordinate System and adjusted to the Regional Planning Commission's, County's, or municipality's control survey, whichever is applicable.
