What is Being Left on the Bottom of Your Lake?

Most lakes and ponds are fed by rivers and creeks and water isn’t the only thing being carried into the lake.  Something unseen is slowly accumulating on your lake bottom – Sediment.   When flooding occurs, the increased river levels cause extremely high amounts of sediment to be deposited into your lake.  Sedimentation is one of the costliest problems facing lakes due to the difficulty of removal.  If you live on a lake that is fed by a creek or river, there is a high need to monitor and map out sediment accumulation.  Learn more about our Sediment Mapping here >> Sediment Mapping Detailed. 
Here at The Mapping Network, we specialize in accurately mapping bodies of water, calculating the water volume, collecting sediment depth samples at critical areas and monitoring the distribution of sediment over time.  We have a nationwide group of professionals specializing in all facets of lake management.   If you are serious about maintaining  a high-quality lake or pond, be sure you have the ability to make the best decisions,  get your lake mapped by the professionals at The Mapping Network.   Give us a call or send an e-mail to find out more details.

Locations of sediment depth points collected. Each cover where a creek entered the lake was surveyed for sedimentation. The results of this project will assist lake managers in creating dredging plans.
