46 Years Dredging and Excavating Experience
Coal Ash Dredging
Removal of settled ash material from a coal ash pond at a power plant is accomplished by dredging – either through wet dredging or through excavation.
Polythlene pipe is a very efficient means for transferring material. This pipe comes in various sizes and can be assembled quickly. We have several thousand feet of pipe on hand.
Ensuring proper depths for water vessels is a routine necessity in waterways around the world because sedimentation gradually fills channels and harbors.
A 12″ Discharge pipe from a dredge is capable of transferring up to 350 cubic yards of sand per hour. Excavating sand and sediment is the primary function of dredging.
Geotextile Tube Dredging
These bags are constructed in several weaves that allows the maximum containment of your material while disbursing maximum flow of filtered water.
Our dredges can remove up to 300 cubic yards of waste per hour. Many wastewater lagoons suffer from excess sludge building up. It can be a constant challenge to remove the sludge.

- 1 Sand and silt washes downstream and from coastal shorelines. This material gradually collects in the basin of channels and harbors. As the sediment increases, it becomes difficult for passenger liners and cargo ships to maneuver. The sediment requires dredging.
- 2Periodic maintenance (dredging, deepening and widening) of harbors and channels is necessary to continue accommodating commercial and private vessels.
- 3Dredging is also employed to reduce the exposure of fish and wildlife to contaminants and pollutants produced by industrial areas.
