Manitoba Municipal Ditch & Culvert Surveys & Profile Plotting for Drainage Licensing

ditch survey

[gap]Most municipal drainage projects in Manitoba require licensing by Manitoba Water Stewardship. A part of the licensing requirement is that a survey be undertaken of the ditch(es) in question, and detailed profiles be produced from the survey data showing the stationing (distance), elevation profiles of the existing ditch bottom, existing culvert bases, plus the prairie (field edge) and road top elevations. The proposed new ditch gradient and any new culverts and their elevation information should also be drawn onto the profile. Surveys should be calibrated to established geodetic elevations, using the current geiod model, and include local benchmarks that can be used for future reference.

We have been providing these survey and plotting services to Manitoba municipalities since 2011, and have surveyed hundreds of miles of ditches. Our data collection and data processing workflows are extremely streamlined, a result of what we’ve learned over hundreds of miles, and the products we deliver to our clients are highly complemented by those using them to implement the drainage works. In fact, we have even developed our own proprietary data collection software program that we run on all our survey equipment to improve efficiency and provide in-field verification that collected data are as accurate and complete as possible.

We are currently accepting contracts from new Manitoba municipalities to provide ditch surveying and plotting services.
