There are many factors to consider before starting a dredging project. Wisconsin Dredging, LLC is here to help! We will come out for a site visit & waterway sample analysis & provide you a no-obligation quote for your project.
We utilize dewatering receptacles such as containers, tubes or bags for your project to collect, contain sediment, and allow clean water to flow through.
Mixing a dewatering polymer or biopolymer with the sediment/water mix extracted from your project site, allows the material to be easily separated from the water to travel freely to the dewatering receptacle, allowing less down time waiting for the material to settle and let water through naturally.
The pictures below show what a typical dewatering geotextile tubes and the dried sediment created after dewatering.
In Wisconsin, we have some areas with excessive winds & waves that need to be handled differently than a normal dredging area. We use turbidity or silt curtains that are weighted on the bottom to contain debris for easier sediment removal & limit sediment travel outside of the designated area.
See the pictures below for examples of silt screens/turbidity curtains.
If your waterway has debris such as sticks or mulch in the water, we can put up a containment barrier to keep the debris away from an area until it is ready to be removed.
See the images below for examples of containment barriers.
