Marlette Lake Dam Rehabilitation

This earthen dam was purchased by State of Nevada in 1963, and has required significant improvements to keep the water system operational. Lumos has worked with SPWD since 2014 on a variety of design, planning, and permitting efforts to restore this historic system.

The Lumos survey team has supported these efforts through topographic survey, using a combination of aerial photogrammetry and ground-collected field shots. This includes a bathymetric survey of the cove area near the dam, a digital terrain model, topographic base map, color orthophoto, and aerial mapping capturing water surface extent around the entire Marlette Lake.
