Lake Sediment – Volumetric Precision

The Mapping Network previously conducted a hydrographic survey to analyze the amount of sediment in a lake. After determining cost of sediment removal, the lake owner decided to dredge specific locations of sediment. The Mapping Network was able to perform volume calculations on the precise boundaries without any additional surveying. LoneStarRanchNorthPondSED_VOLUME_Fixed - Copy_001

Lake Management – Dredging Sediment With an Excavation Plan

The Mapping Network performed a dredging excavation analysis for a lake association on multiple coves with sediment issues. The Mapping Network first conducted a pre-dredge survey along with sediment probes of the coves. With this data, they were able to create models estimating the volume of material needed to excavate to a specific water depth.

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.
