Hydrau-Tech has completed numerous Geographic Information System (GIS) projects and uses GIS software to address a variety of geospatial issues. Hydrau-Tech utilizes Esri ArcGIS software to produce interactive maps, geodatabases, and feature classes to meet client needs.
Permanent Water Quality and Treated Area GIS Dataset Creation
In November 2013, Hydrau-Tech began work on a project to create a GIS geodatabase to house data pertaining to the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) permanent water quality (PWQ) structures throughout the state. The contents of the geodatabase included a point feature class displaying the locations of the structures, a polygon feature class displaying the approximate drainage area of each structure, and all available technical files (as-builts, maintenance manuals, site visit logs, etc.) related to the structures.
Lake Ralph Hall Sedimentation Study
In July 2012, Hydrau-Tech used GIS software to conduct sedimentation accumulation studies for the proposed Lake Ralph Hall reservoir in Fannin County near Ladonia, Texas. The study focused on assessing the sedimentation potential of the upper North Sulphur River watershed in order to determine the impact it could have on the usable capacity of the new reservoir. The map below was produced using ArcGIS and displays the soil erosion risk of the project area.
