Types of Dredging Services

Mechanical Dredging

Mechanical dredging is the most cost-effective method of excavating in removing soils and sediment in ponds, lagoons, levies, dikes and landfills.  Mechanical dredging is used to remove large soil and sediment deposits from various bodies of water and landfills.  After the material has been removed from bodies of water and landfills with mechanical dredging, it can be transferred into trucks or barges for disposal or potential reuse. 

Hydraulic Dredging

If you need to remove large volumes of organic or inorganic soil or sediments from a body of water or landfill, hydraulic dredging is the most economic source to do the job. This equipment uses a system of rotating underwater cutters and pumps to turn soil and sediment into a slurry that’s then moved using a floating pipeline system. Hydraulic dredges operate in a fraction of the time mechanical dredges take to complete a job and are preferred for removing high volumes of soil and sediment from bodies of water or landfills.

Hydraulic dredging provides the cleanest and least obtrusive method for soil and sediment removal without damaging the environment.

Compared to mechanical dredging, hydraulic dredging requires a larger disposal pond so that slurry can dry for future removal. 

GSD Companies is also capable of designing and operating water filtration systems, such as bag filters, sand filters, active carbon and aluminum filters, to ensure all water quality standards are met.
