DNR Visits Huntingburg City Lake

Rod Edgell and Doug Nusbaum of the Lake and River Enhancement Section (LARE) of the Division of Fish and Wildlife, Indiana Department of Natural Resources visited Huntingburg Lake early June, 2011. Their mission was to complete a bathymetric (depth) survey using hydroacoustic technology.  The data collected is a result of recent technology that makes data collection more efficient, thus allowing the collection of many more data points than was possible with previous methods. The last time this was done by LARE was in the early 90's. With this data, Huntingburg will be able to compare both  bathymetric surveys and see how the lake has evolved in the last 20 years.
