Marine & Waterfront Solutions by Vargo Associates

Hydrographic surveys and maps from Vargo Associates are key resources for development and restoration projects along the Atlantic Coast. Storms, beach erosion, water diversion, and effluence cause dramatic changes to the underwater landscape. Detailed mapping and bathymetric data on marinas, harbors, lakes, streams, and bays provide valuable insight for dredging projects, utility crossings, beach restorations, and bulkhead and bridge design.

Marine & Waterfront Survey Services

At Vargo Associates, we employ advanced technology to collect and process underwater data. Information collected using our single beam echo sounder and HYPACK® software can then be seamlessly incorporated into the modeling software used by design professionals. Where hands-on data collection is required, we utilize boats, skiffs, and our ARGO amphibious vehicle to reach offshore areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. Vargo’s comprehensive hydrographic survey services include:

  • Marina surveys
