Dredge Volume Verification

Have a dredging project coming up for your lake or pond?   How do you know if the dredge contractor removed the correct amount of sediment?  The Mapping Network specializes in pre-dredge and post-dredge surveys to verify dredge projects are done according to plan.  We use top-of-the-line GPS and sonar technology to accurately survey the lake bottom.

The map on the left shows the current water depths in the pond.  The map on the right shows what the pond will look like once the soft sediment is removed

Power Plant Intake Dredge Project Hydrographic Survey

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 and post dredge survey along with calculating the amount of material removed.  The map below is the post-dredge survey after all dredging operations were performed.

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.

Post-Dredge Water Depth Verification

The Mapping Network completed a post dredge bathymetry survey to show the status of a  dredging project on a lake near Kansas City.   A comparison map of the pre-dredge and post-dredge depths was generated 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.

Dredging Case Study by PondMedics

The Mapping Network partner, PondMedics, Inc.,wrote a practical guide about planning and executing a dredging project of your own.  The examples used in this guide are taken from a recent project PondMedics, Inc. conducted on two irrigation/storm water retention ponds at a world-renown soccer complex in a northern suburb of Dallas.
