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.
Depth and bathymetric mapping utilize GPS tracking 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.
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 for future budget planning, and ways to reduce ongoing buildup.
