Wernly, J.F., Zajd, H.J., Jr., and Coon, W.F., 2016, Geospatial dataset of bathymetric survey of lower Sixmile Creek reservoir, Ithaca, New York, 2015: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7G15Z0S.

Summary

Water depths were measured during November 2015 and bathymetric elevations were computed for the lower Sixmile Creek reservoir in Ithaca, Tompkins County, N.Y. These data were used to create a bathymetric surface (TIN) of the reservoir. Data collected in 1938 were used to create a second TIN and a contour line shapefile. This dataset includes the ADCP-measured transect data and manually-measured point data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey, Ithaca, N.Y., during November 16-20, 2015, and the two bathymetric-surface TINS (for 1938 and 2015) and a 1938 contour line shapefile that were created by the GIS program, City of Ithaca, N.Y.

Purpose

Data were used to estimate the volume of sediment that has accumulated in the reservoir since 1903 and the current water-storage capacity of the reservoir. These results will assist City of Ithaca personnel to make an informed decision regarding the disposition of the 30-ft dam that creates the reservoir. Options being considered include demolition and removal of the dam, renovation of the dam to meet current New York State safety standards, and repair of the gate at the base of the dam to permit use of the reservoir for flood-control purposes.
