Shaw Bathymetric (VC Summer Nuclear Facility)

Dennis Corporation was contracted by the Shaw Group to perform a bathymetric survey of a 50-acre portion of Lake Monticello.  The purpose of the survey was to provide base mapping to engineers for the evaluation of potential intake structures for the construction of two new V.C. Summer nuclear reactors.  The project was completed using 36 cross sections spaced at 100’ intervals.  Soundings were taken at 10’ stationing producing a base map with 1’ contour intervals.  The maximum depth of the project was 75’ as referenced to normal pool elevation. Dennis Corporation field personnel completed the hydrographic survey during a one day session.
