Flatwater: Bodies of Water without direct tidal influence such as reservoirs, open pit mines, lakes, rivers.
REESE Water & Land Surveys has performed bathymetric surveys in flat water environments since 2000. Many times these projects require volumetric computations, contour mapping, and sub-bottom profiles of material strata from acoustic images. When bathymetry and aerial mapping surface models are combined, a composite model of an entire basin can be derived for engineering study, permit applications, and minimum pool water level compliance. Pre-, progress and post-dredging surveys are performed for dredging contractors or project owners in a variety of environments.
