Dredging Services

Dredging is the process of removing sediment and residual debris from a body of water. Over time sediment can build up and be harmful to the health of a body of water. The National Ocean Service explains dredging is, “routine necessity in waterways around the world because sedimentation—the natural process of sand and silt washing downstream…” Dredging can benefit: lagoons, storm water detention ponds, dredge sediment lagoons, marinas, golf course ponds, canals, and home association lakes.

 

Dredging into a Clean Lake
A key benefit of dredging: a gorgeous body of water.

In order to have a robust, livable body of water it is important to regularly remove the sediment, debris and underwater plants which build up over time. An excess of sediment creates a murky, dirty, and eventually lifeless pond. A marine biology study conducted by Extension, an arm of Michigan State and their nature research programs, explains,

 

“If dredging your pond beyond the photic zone to reduce plant growth is what you desire, then dredging will help. If dredging to 15 feet or more to improve fish habitat is what you desire, then dredging will help.”

 

It goes on to detail, “(d)redging can also remove muck and sediment during the process, as well as provide a better habitat for fish.”  In order to maintain a well-kept body of water over time it is essential to regularly have it dredged as sediment builds up.

 

We are now offering lake and pond dredging services in South Carolina and surrounding areas. If you're interested in more information on a cultivating a lively, beautiful body of water click here.

 

Soil Remediation

An environmental website called GreensGrow explains several key principles or methods to remediation including:

  • Excavate soil and take it to a disposal site.
  • Aerate soil in the contaminated site, as long as there is no risk of air pollution.
  • Thermal remediation by introduction of heat to the substance.
  • Extraction of groundwater or soil paper.
  • Containment of soil contaminants.
  • Phytoremediation, or the use of plants, to extract heavy metals.
