How Theorem Geo Associates can help.

Theorem Geo Associates (TGA) has developed a robust database platform specifically tailored to track complex lake use permit application proposals and their key milestones throughout the life of the project/activity. FacStatĀ® is a user-friendly multiple lake use permitting repository for your entire array of lake management obligations. This system assists the lake management team in tracking all phases of the various lake use permitting programs. Once captured, this information provides documentation of the various steps involved in permitting all types of lake access, whether private piers, residential and commercial multi-slip marinas, conveyances for major/minor water withdrawals, bridge and utility line crossings, and effluent outfalls.

Monitor

Track complex lake use permit application proposals and their key milestones.

Detect and document invasive nuisance aquatic species infestations and treatment option effectiveness utilizing multi-spectral imaging and analysis. Early detection can mean the difference between dealing with infestations in a manageable fashion with reasonable costs and efficiency over more drastic and costly alternatives, up to and including the potential for complete loss of use especially impacting recreational access, generation assets, and industrial and public water supplies.

Development and implementation of ongoing field data collection information utilizing GPS-enabled mobile devices during routine lake and resource management activities.

Spatially track and photographically document all routine lake use permit activity close-out inspections. Enhance structure renovation identification and remedial action compliance activities to ensure a fully compliant comprehensive lake management program.

Enhanced Compliance

Document public safety plan devices and signage associated with FERC license requirements and recreation community accessibility commitments at or associated with hydroelectric facilities and their operation.

Programmable sUAS (drone) flights that match public safety plan signage/device location maps with boat/recreationist view of those signs and devices. Especially beneficial during high/low flow events. The use of drones reduces staff travel time to inspect and document sign and device availability/visibility/condition. Additionally, during safety inspection flights your staff can have the advantage of conducting aerial maintenance inspections of other project works.
