CWWTPR – Drone Use for Topographical Survey

The following notification has been received from the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant Relocation Project Team.

“We are writing to inform you of some survey work that will be taking place over the weekend at some proposed construction areas for the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant Relocation project.

The survey works will involve the flying of drones, so that we can get better ground level detail to feed into our designs for the plant. The work will help us produce an accurate digital terrain map and digital surface map.

We can confirm that the accredited drone pilots are working with operational authorisation granted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority. There will also be several surveyors walking around the area to establish ground control who will be carrying theodolites and/or prisms. All data gathered is fully compliant with GDPR regulations.”
