Sediment Issues on Missouri River Marina

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.
The Mapping Network teamed up with a local engineering company to map a marina on the Missouri River.  The purpose of this project was to determine the amount of sedimentation in the marina.  The Army Corps of Engineers used this information to gather bids for dredging the marina.  The post-dredge report declared an accurate bathymetric and sedimentation survey was collected and all parties were very satisfied with the results.
