Dredge Excavation Planning in Lake Cove

The Mapping Network utilized several different technologies to create a 3D model of the land and water topography.  The Mapping Network used a combination of Hypack, RTK GPS, and Odom CV100 Sonar to create the bathymetry map.  For land topography The Mapping Network used RTK and UAV technology.  This model was used to calculate the amount of sediment that needed to be removed so lake managers could plan the upcoming lake dredging project.

Drone/UAV and Sonar to 3D Water Capacity Study

The Mapping Network utilized several different technologies to create a 3D model of the land and water topography.  They used a combination of Hypack, RTK GPS, and Odom CV100 Sonar to create the bathymetry.  For land topography The Mapping Network used RTK and UAV technology.  This model was used to calculate a water capacity chart and help meet a federal mandate.

Berm Design for Dredge Project

The Mapping Network team created a proposed berm construction plan for a client in Oklahoma. The primary objective of this project was to determine the size and location of the basin to put the dredged material.  The client was looking for the cut and fill slopes, basin depth, capacity interval volumes, and amount of material cut and filled.   The customer will use the information to assist with bids for dredging contractors to remove all the material.

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.

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.

Power Plant Dredge Progress

The Mapping Network completed a bathymetry survey to show the status of a dredging project for a coal power plant.   The comparison map was calculated 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 and keeps all parties on the same page.
