Brighton Dam Underwater Inspection and Sonar Imaging

Location: Brookeville, Maryland Client: Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission

Silt levels were measured as part of an underwater inspection of a Maryland dam.

JMT completed an underwater inspection of Brighton Dam, located in Brookeville, MD, to document silt level measurements and the condition of the upstream and downstream concrete surfaces, six sluice gates including the inlet structure, floodgates and seals, downstream training wall, and abutments. All notable defects were documented in a written report as well as underwater video recording. All silt readings were documented using hydrographic side scan sonar equipment. The reports also included recommendations for future inspections and repairs to be performed.
