Bathymetry and Sediment Survey of Lake in Peoria, Illinois

A property association in Peoria, Illinois needed to quantify sediment build-up in their coves.  The Mapping Network created a hydrographic and sediment survey of the two lakes and 20 coves.   The amount of sediment in each cove was calculated along with other vitals stats about the current lake condition.  A watershed map was also generated to help understand where sources of sediment are coming from.

Cost-Effective Sediment Monitoring with GPS Lake Mapping

GPS Lake Map to Monitor Sediment Levels

Integrated Lakes Management (ILM) recently completed a mapping project for a Chicago metro property association.  GPS Lake mapping was conducted on site to reveal the actual depths of the water and sedimentation.  The primary purpose of this project involved sediment monitoring for future dredging.  In order to avoid large costs and help property managers budget for sediment removal, ILM located the high priority areas of sediment accumulation and determined the need and location for dredging.  The mapping techniques utilized in this project helps ILM accurately calculate in-situ sediment volume and accumulation over time.  This lake mapping results provided the baseline depth profile needed for ILM to accurately isolate areas of high sedimentation for removal and help property managers budget accordingly.  This powerful information allows for smart management decisions and will save thousands of dollars in the future.  The maps below show how the resulting GPS Lake Mapping Survey helped visualize where the high areas of sedimentation are located.  Please note the maps are compressed and the quality is significantly reduced.  For high resolution examples please contact ILM or The Mapping Network.
