Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. was selected by PB Americas and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission to survey 15 lakes in the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes in Citrus County Florida. The survey consisted of accurately mapping lake bottoms and sub-bottoms through submerged vegetation using a variety of devices including DGPS, dual frequency sonar sounders, ground penetrating radar and sampling systems including grab and tube samplers. The goal of the project was to determine quantities of decayed vegetation and sediments to be excavated by dredging. The project was performed on time and under budget.
