Tampa Bay Water - Cypress Creek Facility

Tampa Bay

Engaging under our existing As-Needed Surveying Services contract with Tampa Bay Water (TBW), SSMC performed a boundary and topographic survey. A 25’ maximum interval elevation grid with contours at 0.5’ intervals was created. Trees 4” and greater were located along with the top of catch basins, control structures, weirs, and overflows elevations inverts of stormwater pipes and catch basins, locations of leach fields, septic tanks, power poles, and power lines (above ground), wetland delineation lines and their buffers, spot elevations, spot elevations of specific locations near tanks and other infrastructure and exterior dimensions of all buildings. Flying over the 62-acre site with one of our DJI Phantom 4 drones, one of SSMC’s licensed pilots was able to collect 4k HD imagery of the site. Undocumented pipes were field-marked, using ground-penetrating radar, and collected during the site survey.


“I had the pleasure of working with a couple of your employees over the past couple weeks. James Murphy and Beau Boyles; very professional and “can do” attitudes. They worked well with the crew from PSI and the task was completed one day ahead of schedule with no underground utilities damaged.”
