Underwater Inspections, Benthic Surveys & Silt depth measurement
Ready for construction? Do you know what may be in your path?
Count on Soar Environmental Consulting pilots and certified divers to conduct underwater inspections prior to construction and ensure your project is not delayed due to unforeseen issues. Our Soar pilots utilize an underwater benthic vehicle to inspect for leaks in dams, pressure changes on penstocks or intakes, “Grizzly” condition, valve blockage, or simply finding a lost item. We equip our vehicles with 180 degree sonar viewers that allow for a clear, unobstructed view of your dam intake system or discharge area as well as the sonar location of medium to large items on or against your dam.
Keep your project on budget!
We can determine blockage issues and silt depth before you drain the pool! If you are not sure what you will be facing when draining your lake or water body, we can certainly assist. We can map the bottom of the lake, look for felled trees near your outlets, find historical coffer dams or abandoned construction remnants. Our underwater inspection cameras will give you the “fish-eye” view you need to find issues before construction commencement. We can assist to keep your project on time and under budget.
Sometimes it happens…
I’ve been there before – employees sometimes drop tools or other items of value off Dams, boat launches, docks or piers. If you need something recovered, give Soar Environmental Consulting a call. We’ll soar on down to locate and recover your item! We would love any excuse to dive in to recover your lost valuables.
Soar employees are SCUBA Certified for recovery and high-altitude dives. If you have a need for personal underwater inspection and recovery, then you’ve soared into the right place!
