Winburndale Dam

WINBURNDALE DAM-AQUATIC DRONE INSPECTION AND BATHYMETRIC PROFILING

Image

Winburndale Dam is a concrete gravity dam, built in 1931 as a water supply for the city of Bathurst. However it has recently been used for park watering and industrial purposes. The dam wall is 22 m high and 167 m wide, with earth filled abutments encased in a light concrete seal.

Bathurst Regional Council’s primary concern was finding major structural deficiencies within the dam, as well as revising its capacity. Only requiring 2 hours of robotic data collection, Abyss was able to provide high resolution geo-tagged images of the physical fabric and condition of the dam wall, including any features present such as the scour pipe flange, tower structure and truncheon arm. A cost-effective bathymetric analysis of the dam capacity was was undertaken.
