Mapping and Surveying to Plan for Future Needs

Mapping and surveying a waterbody provides the blueprint needed to develop a sound water management plan.

Clarke Aquatic Services provides data collection on the presence, density and distribution of native and invasive aquatic plants within a waterbody, accurate bathymetry mapping of its size, volume and contours as well as sediment surveys with analysis of its build-up levels.

Clarke’s Lake, Pond and Waterbody  Mapping and Surveying Capabilities Include:

Clarke’s lake, pond and waterbody mapping and surveying capabilities include:
  • Bathymetric mapping and surveying of topography / depth levels
  • Sediment hardness / density analysis for lake dredging, erosion control and budget planning
  • Aquatic vegetation surveying, including their density levels
  • Easy-to-read treatment maps for weed and algae control with optional product recommendations
  • Easy-to-read lake contour maps, depth maps and sediment level maps
  • Diagnostic, in-field and post-treatment data collection
  • Algae and weed treatment, littoral planting and water quality management services are available

The Types and Benefits of Mapping for Lakes and Waterbodies

What is Aquatic Plant and Weed Mapping? Aquatic plant mapping provides information to form management strategies, including targeting invasive species that invade ecosystems and push out valuable native aquatic plants. Clarke utilizes science-based techniques to collect data and determine the areas that should be treated and the most efficient product to do so depending on the community’s unique water management goals.

What is Depth and Bathymetric Surveying? Depth and bathymetric mapping utilizes GPS integrated with depth-sensing technology to chart bottom contours and volume. Our experts use this essential data to develop aquatic plant and algae management programs complete with the most efficient aquatic herbicides, as well as to design aeration systems and navigable maps.

What is Sediment / Hardness Mapping and Surveying? Sediment and hardness analysis examines the accumulation of organic debris on a lake bottom. Clarke uses these surveys to assess long-term management strategies such as when it will need to be removed, the costs of doing so for future budget planning, and ways to reduce ongoing buildup.
