Remove Sediment Quickly from Texas Waterways
Our Dredger Launches and Loads Faster
Clean Channel Dredging deploys a pontoon-mounted sediment-removal system that mobilizes quicker than larger, heavier systems. Launching and loading uses a trailer and is more like a boat launch than a conventional dredge or excavator. The result? Less labor, less time and less damage to the surrounding areas and the shoreline.
Once launched, the pontoon then travels by means of an electric windlass and cable set. The dredger, which can fit into narrow canals, excavates and moves sediment to the pump inlet by a hydraulic rotor blade. The pumped sediment is carried away for dewatering or other disposition at the rate of up to 1600 GPM.
Move the Sediment or Redeploy It
The wet sediment can be “pumped and dumped” immediately through auxiliary hoses. However, it’s often better to pump the wet sediment to geotextile dewatering bags (these can come as large as the area of a football field), which lets us reclaim and redirect clean water back into the channel, lake or pond. Clean Channel Dredging works with you and your community to determine the optimum location and size of these sediment filtration bags and soil disposition.
