Terry McNabb, President of Aquatechnex, with offices covering the west coast of the United States, had a client request an updated lake map to note current depths and mark sediment depths. Information gathered during the lake mapping process helped county government officials better comprehend the amount of water in the reservoir and also isolated sedimentation problem areas. The resulting map provided the baseline depth profile needed for long-term sedimentation monitoring. The contour data has been loaded into the county GIS database and the maps will be made available to the public to display characteristics of the lake.
