Retention Pond Management

A hydrographic and sediment study was recently conducted on a retention pond to provide a information to help with proper management. It’s important to know how much sediment and other material accumulates in retention basins to insure that it’s functioning properly. The image below shows the sediment thickness found by the sediment probes and sonar technology. Sediment_InletPoint_001

Coal Ash Pond Bathymetry and Dredge Survey

The Mapping Network performed a hydrographic and dredge survey for a power plant’s coal ash ponds. These can be difficult because of the composition of material.  With the combination our sonar, GPS, and years of experience with coal ash, we were able to give them an accurate estimate of ash volume.

Dredge Channel Planning Using Soft Sediment Analysis

The Mapping Network performed a pre-dredge and sediment study on a county reservoir.  Their mission was to locate a historic channel buried under several feet of soft sediment. The Mapping Network had to carefully examine the sonar readings and sediment probe information to best locate the channel.  The result of the analaysis providing accurate information to plot the idea course for the dredger to input into their Dredgepak software system.

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

The map on the left shows the existing water depths in the pond before dredging. The map on the right shows what the pond looked like once the soft sediment was 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.

Golf Course Irrigation Pond Water Volume

The Mapping Network recently completed a lake mapping project for historic Winged Foot Country Club in Mamaroneck, New York.  The client requested the creation of a detailed lake map for understanding true depths and water volume for seasonal irrigation planning.   Additionally, The Mapping Network team collected sediment samples throughout the pond so the club can closely monitor sedimentation rates in the future.

When Accuracy Matters, Choose The Mapping Network

The Mapping Network utilized a combination of Hypack, RTK GPS, and Odom CV100 Sonar to create a highly accurate bathymetric map for a pair of lakes in Ohio.  With precision lake mapping through The Mapping Network, many important features of the lake can be seen.   On the map below, showing 3D shaded water depth, many definitive features can be seen including the original river channels in each lake and even an old road crossing the southern lake!
