Surveying a Contaminated Creek with a HyDrone-RCV

The project was to survey a creek underneath a roadway. The creek was contaminated and contained a lot of debris, making it dangerous for anyone to enter the water. It was still early Spring and the water was cold. As with all survey projects, they needed it yesterday.

We purchased a HyDrone-RCV and SonarMite MILSpec singlebeam echosounder, and expected good performance based on what we had heard. We expected to use only 1 person to run the equipment, which was the case in this project. 

The biggest obstacle we faced was the fact that all of the needed data was underneath a bridge. We used the SonarMite previously, but always with an RTK GPS. In this instance, we used our Trimble R-8 Robotic Total Station and came off of our existing control. We placed a 360 prism on the HyDrone-RCV, set the data collector up to continuously collect—and boom—we had it done in no time! Looking back, we are happy with everything about our purchase and results. Here is a link to our video showing the survey. Learn more about Prudent Engineering.
