Lakemont Park, Blair County
Keller Engineers performed a bathymetric survey of the 13-acre lake at Lakemont Park.
A bathymetric survey is conducted by using standard survey grade GPS equipment, which acquires satellite signals to the GPS head attached to a boat.
An echosounder transducer transmitted a pulse straight down until it hits a solid surface, such as the bottom of the lake or the top of sediment. The coordinates for that bottom point are then calculated automatically from both the GPS readings and transducer measurements and the result is then stored in the survey data collector.
The information taken from this survey was given to our Land Development team to:
Additionally, the survey data will be used to estimate both the volume of sediment to be removed and the volume of the lake.
We have teamed with Keller Engineers on several design-build projects for PennDOT. When selecting a designer, the more critical factors are trust and competence, more so than a low price. If your designer makes a mistake in quantities it can cost you a lot of money. We have stayed with Keller Engineers because we trust them to provide competent service at a competitive price. S.
