An Advanced Restoration Method For Larger Waterfronts.
This solution is convenient, cost effective, and productive. Through hydraulic dredging, a floating barge (typically 40’ and larger) pumps inorganic sediment or organic sediment (mud, muck, decaying plants) out of a pond or lake. We use a horizontal auger dredge, which tends to work well in large ponds and smaller lakes. Pumped water is returned after sediment is filtered out using our geotextile tubes. Pictured is a 24′ hydraulic dredge utilizing an 8″ pipe.
- No draining or diverting of water out of your pond, lake, waterfront, or river is necessary, which means a lower fish and amphibian mortality rate.
- Our horizontal auger dredge is relatively compact and is easily launched in most common applications.
- Outfitted with a high capacity pump, and a horizontal auger head, we can dredge down to 15′ deep.
- Our equipment is one truck transportable, thus reducing mobilization costs significantly versus most hydraulic dredging operations. This results in greater value for the homeowner, lake association, or municipality.
As with anything else, the right tool for the job is essential. Should you need a larger project executed, we have access to hydraulic dredges of all sizes, and will have something appropriate for your project.
