Dredging

Dredging Services

Evergreen North America offers Dredging Services, a process used to remove accumulated sediment from the bottom, and in some cases, the banks or sides of ponds, lagoons, or other bodies of water. A specialized piece of equipment called a Dredge creates a vacuum that sucks up and pumps out the unwanted sediment and debris.

How Dredging Works

During the process of dredging, a dredge is used to remove muck and mud from the bottom or side of a body of water. A dredge is equipped with a submersible pump that relies on suction to excavate the debris. A long tube carries the sediment from the bottom of the body of water to the surface. The disposal of the dredged material must be conducted in compliance with federal, state and local government laws and regulations.

When dredging, the operator lowers the boom of a dredge to the bottom (or side) of the body of water. A rotating cutter- bar then uses teeth to loosen the settled material, as the submersible pump removes the sediment from the bottom of the waterway. The silt and debris are then transported away for final processing.
