Deleting Random Points

As I was creating a surface consisted of contour lines, suddenly some bunch of random points in the surface were also created. I want my surface to be solely generated by contour lines only. So...

 

I know I can get rid of those points by deleting them through edit but I want to get rid of them all at once. How can I do that? Or... Is there even a way to do that?

If you added the contours to the srf definition as contours objects remove them and add them again but turn off all the options that add points to minimized flat areas.

Alternatively you can expand the Surface, expand Definition, right-click on Simplify Surface and use the Point Removal option.
