Virginia Lake Management provided a bathymetric lake mapping survey for a lake in Virginia. Engineers recently performed a flood study on the dam and found the spillway insufficient. While preparing an engineering report to propose upgrade options the only bathymetric data available was hand collected in the 1950’s. As a local expert on bathymetric mapping, Virgina Lake Management was able to conduct an accurate, up-to-date lake depth map for the engineer’s report. This new lake survey will provide the precise lake depths needed to create the best dam upgrade options. In addition, the data from the new survey will assist engineers in determining the amount of volume reduction achieved if the decision is made to lower the lake level a few feet.
