Hydrographic Survey – McGuire Nuclear Station

Duke Energy uses its Standby Nuclear Service Water Pond at the McGuire Nuclear Station as an emergency water supply for nuclear reactor cooling. To provide required volume computations, McKim & Creed performed topographic and hydrographic surveys of the lake. Surveyors used high frequency (200hHz) single-beam sonar for the hydrographic survey. Trimble DGPS provided horizontal positioning. A tab delimited .ASC file was imported into AutoCAD, and volume calculations were performed in digital terrain models.
