The notice shall include a copy of the survey, the nature of the relief requested, and notice that the court may award attorney fees and costs to the prevailing party if an action to establish title is filed by the requestor against the recipient. The notice shall be served in the same manner as provided for service of process in Section 2004 of Title 12 of the Oklahoma Statutes.
