How It Works
During the process of dredging, a dredge is used to remove sediment and debris 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 sediment disposal can be done with a silt basin built on-site or through the use of dewatering tubes or bags, depending on size and location of water.
When dredging, the operator lowers the boom of a dredge to the bottom or ledge of the body of water. A rotating cutterhead then uses teeth to loosen the settled material, which is then pumped to a basin or dewatering tubes or bags. The silt and debris are then transported away for final processing.
If proper precautions aren’t taken, & your pond/other body of water is neglected, you could find yourself facing dense weed & algae build-up as well as sediment & muck accumulation that has killed off all aquatic life.
Your pond or other body of water will need maintenance and up-keep to ensure it continues to thrive even after it has been dredged the first time. Midwest Dredging & Pond Care is here to help make sure that your pond/ other body of water needs are fully taken care of to keep the ecosystem flourishing. The end-result is a body of water that is aesthetically-pleasing as well as safe to fish or engage in other recreational activities in.
