Data Identification
Abstract: The U.S. Geological Survey conducted a sedimentation survey of Lago Lucchetti, Yauco, Puerto Rico, in 2013–14 in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority. This dataset in shapefile format was generated from the survey data. The survey updated previous surveys, conducted in 2000, and provided accurate information regarding reservoir storage capacity and sedimentation rate using bathymetric techniques, coupling global positioning system and a depth sounder device.
Purpose: This dataset in shapefile format contains contours of the bottom of the Lago Lucchetti reservoir that were generated from the surveyed data of a sedimentation survey during September 2013 and May 2014. The study was conducted at the Lago Lucchetti, Yauco, Puerto Rico, by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority. The objective of the project was to complete a bathymetric study to update the reservoir storage capacity and actualize the reservoir sedimentation rate by comparing the new survey data with a previous survey completed in 2000.
