Iowa Reservoir Dredge Project Volume Calculations

A 200 acre reservoir in Des Moines, Iowa is undergoing a comprehensive renovation.  Part of the plan included dredging problem areas in the lake. Hydraulic dredging will remove this deposited sediment from the lake bottom, increase lake depth, and provide multiple recreation benefits for the public.  The Mapping Network completed several bathymetry surveys to verify the dredging process was complete for each section.   The Mapping Network generated maps to display the amount and location of material removed.
