Flexible Processes

We Organize Your Project into Flexible Phases

Clean Channel Dredging typically uses a phased approach to sediment clearing and removal projects. We work with you (and your community, in many cases) to determine scope, goals (desired depth, etc.), sediment disposition, etc. Clean Channel Dredging works within applicable regulations and recommendations of the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA), the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) as they apply to Texas waterways, including attaining needed permits.

Here’s a typical channel cleaning project. This assumes a channel less than half a mile long that requires a few feet of additional depth.
 Phase Estimated Days  Description
 Phase 1  3 days  Mobilization: This phase is complete when the dredging equipment and crew are on-site and ready to work. Dewatering bags have been decided, acquired and are laid out in the spoils area ready to receive discharge.
Phase 2 7 days  In Progress: The midpoint of the dredging, a good time to verify all is going according to plan. Dewatering bags are filtering the wet sediment.
Phase 3 7 days Dredging Complete: When sediment has been removed to achieve the agreed-on water depth, the dredging is complete. Dewatering continues.
Phase 4 4 – 6 weeks Soil Disposition and Site Restoration: The end of the project comes when dewatering is complete. The dewatering bag(s) are opened and recovered sediment is moved to designated locations for backfill soil. Refuse removed from spoils area and clean-up done.
