To understand how to best restore a waterbody, three main forms of research are essential. Water samples, sediment samples, and sonar mapping. These forms of research allow Clean-Flo to fully understand the ecosystem in which it will be operating. Clean-Flo takes water samples at different depth profiles to gauge temperature and dissolved oxygen changes from the surface to bottom. Water samples can also be analyzed in a laboratory for various parameters and algae content. Sediment samples are taken sent to the laboratory as well. Knowing the makeup of the sediment is a direct indicator of how effective any naturally restorative solution will be in a body of water. Lastly, a sonar scan is conducted using the Lowrance HDS7 fish finder/Chartplotter with broadband sounder technology, built-in GPS antenna, and high-definition mapping. Sonar mapping is utilized to understand and visualize waterbody attributes such as depth, vegetation, and bottom hardness. Here are some examples of what that looks like.
