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.

GPS Lake Map Assists in Fight Against Invasive Vegetation

Allied Biological and The Mapping Network created a bathymetric lake map to provide a base map for tackling a difficult invasive weed population.  Traditionally lake maps have been used primarily by anglers but it has become an essential tool for lake managers and biologists in establishing lake management programs with regard to herbicide applications, dredging efforts and lake drawdowns.  Bathymetric mapping and subsequent vegetation survey revealed that Mountain Lake contains a diverse plant community including, Eurasian water milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum), coontail (Ceratophyllum demersum), curly-leaf pondweed (Potamogeton crispus), spatterdock (Nuphar spp.), white water lilies (Nymphaea spp.), bassweed (Potamogeton amplifolius), and watershield (Brasenia schreberi), as well as the branched algae, Chara.  The focus of the 2009 aquatic plant management plan was to control the invasive Eurasian water milfoil in approximately twelve acres of shoreline area.
