In 2014, the construction of the Green Square Storm Water Drain (GSSD) began by the City of Sydney, aiming to alleviate the flooding of Green Square. As a crucial part of the project, Abyss Solutions conducted bathymetric profiling of the Alexandra Canal. Data from this survey allowed Sydney Water to monitor sediment erosion and deposition rates along the canal and compared the results with previous modeling results. Further, it provided Sydney Water means of validating hydraulic modeling and managing stakeholder opposition to the construction of infrastructure in an environmentally sensitive area.
