Dredging Permits FAQs
Major effort and planning is required to get the permits for your dredging project.
History of Dredging
Water has always been a key way to transport people, goods, and everything else. Yet it’s not always smooth sailing.
4 Key Steps in Dredging Projects
The decision shouldn’t be made only considering the price. It’s essential to look for the best value per money and to sign the contract based on the contractor’s experience, safety assurance, fleet, and technical capabilities.
3 Types of Dredging Projects
Periodical dredging is performed on a regular basis to maintain a site that would otherwise get damaged by the sedimentation of sand or silt. Developmental dredging creates a new development that was not there before and finally emergency dredging.
A quick way to dredge is using an excavator you rent or own with the reach to put the cutter or jetting head into the material you want to dredge. Watch this in action.

Closing & Dewatering a Fly Ash Pond
Fly ash material has historically been stored in ponds and is known to be unstable and sensitive to vibration when saturated.
Creating a Closed Loop System for Fly Ash Dredging and Dewatering
The process involves hydraulic dredging of residuals from the Recycle Basin Pond, long distance pumping of residuals, mechanical dewatering of the residuals.
Concrete Lined Canal Dredging Video
Irrigation canals, agricultural water delivery systems require periodic maintenance, involving mechanical removal of sediments and algal growth from canal basins. Our liner safe wheel is excellent for this application. See it in action here.
Barge Unloading Slurry Pump Video
Non-self-unloading barges need to be unloaded either mechanically or hydraulically. Mechanical unloading can be done with a dredge pump, grab, backhoe, excavating wheel, or bucket elevator.
