BLUFFTON, SC, Jan. 23, 2012/Quality Lakes Inc./- Quality Lakes Inc. announces the addition of an advanced sub-bottom lake sediment mapping system. This new technology is fully automated and does not require labor intensive manual sediment measurements. The system logs sediment and water depth readings simultaneously, creating a remarkably accurate sediment profile of a lake or waterway. Dredging companies use this information to accurately bid and complete projects. Mapping lake sediment with this technology saves time, money, and materials by being informed and efficient with the dredging process.

This advanced lake mapping technology allows owners to fully understand the severity of the sediment issues when evaluating or planning a dredging project. Cubic yardage calculations of sediment within each removal area can easily be charted. Choosing important areas to dredge, based on up-to-date, accurate information allows for a focused dredging effort, saving thousands of dollars.

Mapping a lake bottom can also reveal areas of concern and optimal times when dredging will be necessary to prolong the life of the lake and in many cases insure proper stormwater drainage and movement. Due to the large expense dredging is for lake owners, this new technology has helped owners more effectively budget and plan for projects as well as save time and money. This technology also allows lake owners to document benchmark depths and sediment profiles to use for future reference to address sedimentation, erosion, aquatic plant, or navigation issues. Data collected is compatible with GIS databases.
