Brighton Dam Underwater Inspection and Sonar Imaging

Location: Brookeville, Maryland Client: Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission

JMT completed a full underwater inspection and measured silt levels at a Maryland dam.

JMT completed an underwater inspection of Brighton Dam, located in Brookeville, MD. We documented silt level measurements, as well as the condition of the upstream and downstream concrete surfaces; six sluice gates including the inlet structure, floodgates and seals; downstream training wall; and abutments.

All silt readings were documented using hydrographic side scan sonar equipment. Notable defects were documented in a written report as well as underwater video recording. The reports also included recommendations for future inspections and repairs to be performed.
