This property has 67 stormwater ponds within the community. The ponds vary in age from over 25 years to only a few months old.
Scope of Work:
Consulting services to determine existing state of stormwater ponds (stormwater pond inspection) and bathymetric study for 67 ponds. The objective of the study was to determine sediment issues and status/repairs required on all 67 community owned ponds. Report findings to the Property Owners Association and prioritize repairs and sediment removal to establish a long term plan and budget.
SOLitude Lake Management did a bathymetric study using United States Army Corp of Engineers methodologies to determine the existing depths of 67 ponds. Professional grade GPS and sonar equipment were used for data collection. Contour maps were created from the data to delineate existing pond depths to determine if further sediment analysis was required for potential sediment removal projects.
Each pond was visually inspected to determine status of existing structures (dams, embankments, influent and effluent structures, algae and aquatic weed identification and coverage, animal activity, spillways and dissipaters, aeration equipment, etc.). The final report and recommendations exceeded 400 pages.
