Georgia HOA Uses The Mapping Network for Sediment Mapping and Analysis

Aquatic Environmental Services, Inc (Ball Ground, GA) and The Mapping Network recently completed a mapping project for a home owners association in Georgia.  The lake has a history of significant sediment problems.  Aquatic Environmental Services, Inc mapped the lake in 2007 and the lake had been dredged shortly thereafter.  Now, four years after dredging the lake, homeowners are having difficulties navigating through the coves.  Aquatic Environmental  Services, Inc., updated the lake map a week ago to note current water depths and mark sediment depths.

Another component of the project was to calculate the amount of material needed to be removed in order to make the coves 4 foot deep. 3D models were generated to show how much sediment had accumulated in each cove.  Contour maps were also made for each cove and given to the lake manager and engineer to review for dredging planning.  The Mapping Network then created cut-fill calculations and maps based on the specifications of the lake manager.  The HOA will then use this information as part of the bid package given to dredging companies.  Presenting the precise plans took out the guess work and keep all the dredging contractors on task.

Information gathered during the lake mapping process helped Mr. Grimes’ client better comprehend the level of sedimentation building up over time in the lake.  The resulting map provided the baseline depth profile needed for long-term sedimentation monitoring.

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.

The bottom line – This powerful information allows for smart management and planning decisions and will serve as a baseline for future projects.  A great value! 

In the maps above, the HOA needed the depths of the cove to be a minimum of 4 foot for boat access. Mapping Network located the areas where the current depth was less than four feet, which was the dredging zone. The Mapping Network calculated the dredging area and volume. The current lake bathymetry (left) and the post-dredge contours (middle)are shown in blue shading. A cut-fill model (right) shows areas of cut needed to reach the goal.

Lake Manager is Growing 7 lb Bass in 28 months

Greg Grimes with Aquatic Environmental Services, Inc., designed and resided over the 2009 construction of a trophy bass fishing lake for Jeff Foxworthy in Georgia.  This master planned lake was designed specifically for growing trophy large-mouth bass.  Extensive habitat structure, ridges, brush, feeders, etc were carefully placed during construction.  Once the lake was full the client had the lake mapped utilizing The Mapping Network’s lake mapping technology to reveal this unseen, underwater world.  Combining sub-foot accurate equipment and depth accuracies of up to 1/10th of a foot, the resulting maps provided a  picture of the bottom of the lake.  Mr. Grimes was able to provide a map highlighting the ideal fishing zones in the range of 4 feet to 16 feet deep at 1 foot intervals.  This lake map shows the angler exactly where the fishing hot spots are located on the lake.

Just last week, Aquatic Environmental Services, took a fish survey of the lake and some of the 2 inch bass that were originally stocked in the lake (June, 2009) have grown into 7.5 lb trophy bass!  What a great example of how a professional lake manager can use their knowledge and experience to produce world class results in a short period of time.

Professional lake management company, Aquatic Environmental Services, has created an environment where trophy bass are prospering.

Color Shaded Depths show the special design of this trophy bass lake. Structure was placed and marked with a GPS

Lake Mapping as a Tool for Successful Lake Management

Successful lake management requires an understanding of composition, depth and volume of your lake.  Greg Grimes, President of Aquatic  Environmental  Services, Inc (Ball Ground, Georgia), had a client request an updated lake map to note current depths and mark sediment depths.  Information gathered during the lake mapping process helped Mr. Grimes’ client better comprehend the level of sedimentation building up over time in this fishing lake.  The resulting map provided the baseline depth profile needed for long-term sedimentation monitoring.  Plus, the property owners had several large format wall maps printed to show friends and family where to catch the big ones!
