Measurement of watercourses and production the geodetic plans of riverbeds


Hidrotehnik d.d.


2011 - 2015

Within the framework of the national program of flood protection activities and remediation of watercourses, the water management company Hidrotehnik was given an important task to organize the rehabilitation of the streams of individual watercourses. LGB’s task was the basis for their work: the measurement watercourses and the production the precise riverbeds geodetic plans.

In a short time, a team of LGB engineers measured as many as 56 watercourses across Slovenia. The professional part of the task did not present the greatest challenge this time: it was very difficult to carry out the measurements, as it was necessary to ensure an adequately high level of safety at work. In addition to conducting measurements on land, we also measured the transverse profiles of riverbeds – which means working in cold and rushing water. Mandatory equipment of the surveyor for this project was supplemented by neoprene suits and ropes.

The professional and physical efforts of engineers have been joined by new dimensions of project complexity: work (and life) has repeatedly been directly threatened by bulky waste lying in riverbeds. We also came across unexploded ordnance (grenades), some even from WWI, which were then professionally disposed of by the relevant services.
