Texas Sediment Survey for Dredge Planning

Pond Medics created a bathymetry and a sediment volume study for a property owners association in Texas. The lake was mapped to understand current water depths and to calculate the amount of accumulated sediment.  This is essential information to plan and help the POA manage the future dredging project.

Power Station Predredge Survey for Ash Pond Dredging Project

The Mapping Network team performed a hydrographic predredge survey on a large ash reservoir for a power station in Kansas.   The purpose was to quantify and locate ash accumulation that needed to be dredged per EPA regulations.   By comparing the original bottoms of the ponds with the current bottom depths, a computer model calculated the location and amount of material.  The power company and dredge contractor will use this information to assist in validating that all the material has been removed.

Estimating Dredging Costs in Texas

The Mapping Network and PondMedics completed a bathymetry and sediment survey for a lake near Dallas, Texas.   The client is preparing for dredging proposals for 9 coves and they needed to know the location and amount of material to be removed to bring the coves to the desired depths.

The current water depths were mapped as well as the depth to hard bottom.  The difference between the current water depth (top of sediment) and the hard bottom is the amount of soft sediment that can be removed to bring the lake back to the original depths.  However, the client is requiring the water depth be a minimum of 7 foot deep in navigable areas so this will require dredging the hard clay in some areas.   The Mapping Network team created 3D models comparing the proposed lake bottom with the existing lake bottom and calculated the amount of hard material to be removed.  This critical information will be used to assist with bids for dredging contractors to remove all the material.

Post Dredge Comparison Map

The Mapping Network completed a post dredge bathymetry survey to show the status of a multiple cove dredging project on a lake near Kansas City.   The comparison map was calculated to verify the amount and location of material removed.   Areas still needing to be dredged are located and the dredging contractor will focus their efforts on those locations.  This verifies the dredging has reached the planned depths.

Lake Mapping in South Carolina

Solitude Lake Management created a bathymetry and a sediment volume study for a property owners association in South Carolina. The pond was mapped to understand current water depths and to calculate the amount of accumulated sediment.  This information with assist the POA with future dredge planning.

Mapping Water Capicity

The Mapping Network utilized sonar for collecting water depths and drone technology to collect elevation data surrounding the pond to create an accurate 3D model.  This model was used to calculate a water capacity chart and help meet a federal mandate.

Coal Plant Ponds Bathymetry

The Mapping Network team surveyed two ash ponds for a coal power plant.   The purpose was to quantity and locate ash accumulation in the pond because it needed to be removed per EPA regulations.   By comparing the original bottoms of the ponds with the current bottom depths, a computer model calculated the location and amount of material.  The power company used the information to assist with bids for dredging contractors to remove all the material.

The hydrographic survey included mapping the current bottom elevation of the ponds and also charting the hard bottom of the ponds.  Comparing the two models produces a map showing the location and amount of material has accumulated.
