While you can usually see a few feet down into the water, it is hard to know exactly what the bottom of a waterway looks like. Hydrographic surveys scan and detect what is beneath the surface. This information can help you determine how large the waterway is, as well as what kind of vessels are appropriate for passage.
Why Do You Need Hydrographic Surveys
Knowledge is power and you shouldn’t navigate your water, or open it up for passage, until you know the exact details about the waterway itself. There are plenty of obstacles that could be lurking in your waterway that could cause disaster. A hydrographic survey gives you the power in knowing what the waterway looks like as well as how deep and wide it is for vessels.
