aquatic ecosystem mapping


Aquatic Ecosystem Mapping provides accurate information in support of lake management decisions to protect the beneficial uses of the aquatic environment.

Clean Lakes employs a state-of-the-art fleet of survey vessels equipped with the latest technologies including ciBioBase by Contour Innovations.

Digital data collected in the field is processed to produce high quality data sets and maps to allow for data comparison and aquatic ecosystem changes over time.

It is important to have updated bathymetric information for your lake or waterway as it is a key component in understanding the current state and the way it has changed over time when implementing plans.

Water Volume

By determining water volume at different water levels, precise treatment rates can be established. Water volume data can also be used to identify the quantity of water in gallons at any given level, which can allow a municipality to know how much water can be delivered in case of an emergency.

Sediment Classification

Sediment Classification Mapping provides an accurate profile of the various substrate classification types and depths. The data is used to analyze the sedimentation rate of a system to see how much sediment accumulates over time as well as can help support finding likely areas for Quagga and/or Zebra mussel infestations.
