Bathymetry for Ash Pond Dredge Project

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.

Monitoring Sediment Removal of Dredging Project

The Mapping Network completed a hydrographic survey to show the current dredging status for a reservoir in Iowa.  The survey crew also collected sediment measurements to quantify the amount of soft sediment remaining in the dredge zone.   The Mapping Network generated maps to display the amount and location of material yet to be removed.  This information allows the client and dredge contractor to plan the remaining dredge schedule for the project.

High Resolution Topography and Bathymetry

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.

Pond Water Depth and Excavation Plan in Atlanta, Georgia

The Mapping Network and Aquatic Environmental Services teamed up to create a bathymetric study and excavation plan for a homeowner near Atlanta, Georgia.  The owner wants to achieve a minimum 3 foot water depth in the entire pond.  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.

Proposed excavation plan to achieve minimum 3 ft depth in pond.

Water Pump Intake Bathymetry

The Mapping Network has extensive experience performing hydrographic surveys on intake channels for power plants and drinking water intakes. On the example below The Mapping Network conducted a pre-dredge bathymetric survey along with calculating the amount of material needing to be removed.  This information will be used to collect bids for dredging the area.

Tracking Lake Sediment in Virginia

Solitude Lake Management created a bathymetry and sediment volume study for a property owners association in Virginia. The pond was mapped to understand current water depths and to calculate the amount of accumulated sediment.  This timely analysis can facilitate future dredging and appropriate actions for maintaining a stable environment.

Iowa Reservoir Dredge Project Volume Calculations

A 200 acre reservoir in Des Moines, Iowa is undergoing a comprehensive renovation.  Part of the plan included dredging problem areas in the lake. Hydraulic dredging will remove this deposited sediment from the lake bottom, increase lake depth, and provide multiple recreation benefits for the public.  The Mapping Network completed several bathymetry surveys to verify the dredging process was complete for each section.   The Mapping Network generated maps to display the amount and location of material removed.
