Silver Lake Multi-Beam Bathymetry Survey

MBC conducted a week-long bathymetry survey of Silver Lake. The detailed hydrographic survey using a multi-beam sonar provided 100% coverage of the lake bottom,  and adhered to methods and accuracies outlined in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEY MANUAL (EM 1110-2-1003, 2013).  After completion of the multi-beam hydrographic survey, MBC prepared and delivered the following items to the client within 30 days of the completion of field surveys:

• Engineering-quality AutoCAD chart of lake bottom elevations
• Digital terrain model (DTM) of lake bottom elevations
• EXCEL file containing a listing of lake bottom elevations and coordinates 
• Capacity curve with EXCEL file of capacity computations at 0.1’ elevation intervals
