Mechanical Dredging or Hydraulic Dredging? Depends on your situation.


Mechanical Dredging Services
Mechanical Dredging may be the best choice verses Hydraulic Dredging depending on several different factors. If you have a lot of stumps, trees and debris mechanical dredging can be a better choice. Also a distant disposal area for your sediments may be a reason you may choose mechanical dredging, the further away the site you may need to have the sediments hauled away by our trucks. The distance a hydraulic dredge can pump the sediment is limited. Dredging from shore with one of our 60 feet Long Reach excavators can make it convenient to dredge and remove sediments for areas that need to be dredged close to shore. Whether it be a pond, lakefront, canal, inlet, boat slips a lot of our mechanical dredging equipment can reach it effectively. Permits: some times the type of permit approved will dictate whether that the area needs to be dredged mechanically, which we can handle this for you. Costs, for smaller projects sometimes the best solution in mechanical dredging. We can discuss and review your project and determine which process is best for you. Our company has both Mechanical and Hydraulic dredging equipment, both large and small machines to meet your needs. www.mechanicaldredging.com. Contact American Dredge our office 1-800-649-7946 for dredging services in your area.

Dredging - Marinas, Lake Dredging, Channels, Coves, Commercial Ponds, Lake Association Projects, Residential Lakefronts.
Let us restore your marinas, harbors, channels, lakes and ponds back to their original depths. Professional mechanical and hydraulic dredging company - contractor. We can remove unwanted sediments by dredging and adding depth to improve boat navigation, dock slips, improve fish spawning areas, improve retention ponds, lagoons and help deter aquatic weed growth. Please review this site and you can see pictures of recent jobs and information that will help you plan for your dredging project. 

Hydraulic Dredging Services
Hydraulic Dredging can be done successfully with our fleet of large and small hydraulic dredging machines. We understand each project has it's own unique set of circumstances and this is why we offer hydraulic dredging and mechanical dredging services. With hydraulic dredging the dredge has a discharge hose that can be seen in the pictures, at the rear of the machine, using floats to support the existing the hydraulic dredge. From here the temporary pipeline continues and the lines will continue across the or are laid on the ground until they reach the sediment disposal area. The hydraulic dredge has an auger type head that rotates and chews into the sediment or vegetation, then vacuums the sediments into the temporary pipeline, which is pumped through until the sediments reach there destination, a spoils site or geotextile bag. (Further down the page we discuss the use of geotextile bags.) The dredge can often remove the sediment and pump or transfer the material several thousand feet away, depending on the size of the hydraulic dredge, type of material being transferred or if the sediment is transferred up or down a slope. Hydraulic dredging can be cheaper process when transferring large amounts of material, because you can transfer it quicker if the disposal site without the use of trucks. Again our dredging company has both Mechanical and Hydraulic dredging equipment, both large and small machines to meet your needs. No matter what your circumstance is contact us  www.hydraulicdredging.net , Contact our office 1-800-649-7946 for dredging services in your area.

Dredging the Real Answer for Aquatic Weed Control - problems with Herbicide or Chemical use. Remove years of sediments, add water depth which is important to deter weed growth. The more sunlight penetration usually the more weed growth you will have. Which starts out with high nutrient levels on the lake bottom, which can be found at times after too much use of chemicals. The problems with chemicals will keep decomposing the plant and adding sediment to the bottom of the lake. Which adds nutrients for weed growth. You why you have to keep paying more in chemical treatment each year??  People say dredging can be expensive but what if you pay $75,000 for 10 years for chemical control($750,000). Not to mention what harm did you just put into the water. How much biomass is not on the lake?  How much did it cost you?

Dredging a channel, river, canal: River or channel dredging contractor www.swampthing.us
Sediment removal from lakes, canals, river, ponds
are commonly removed to improve navigation; restore
recreational access for leisure boating, swimming and
fishing; or regain lost storage capacity in water supply
of reservoirs. Dredging also is done to remove nutrient-
rich sediments, remove toxic substances, reduce rooted
aquatic plant growth, lessen sediment suspension by
winds and waves, and improve fish habitat. 


Lake and Pond Dredging  can improve water quality by reducing the amount of nutrients available from the sediments, thereby reducing nuisance algae blooms and invasive aquatic vegetation. This can occur through direct sediment removal of nutrient-rich sediments, or by deepening the lake enough to allow thermal stratification to develop and thereby limit nutrient movement from deep-water areas to the upper waters. Lake and Pond Dredging in areas of rooted aquatic plants controls their growth through direct removal of the lake weeds, removing nutrient rich sediments and also can limit future regrowth if the new water depths are deeper than sunlight can reach. For lakes that freeze over in the winter, fish survival can be enhanced by removing oxygen-demanding sediments - aquatic vegetation and creating deeper water areas.  Contact a Lake and Pond Dredging company for MI, WI, IN, OH, IL, IA, PA, KY, SD, MN that will be looking our for your best interest into the future.

Hydraulic Dredging into tubes for containment and dewatering of industrial waste, municipal sludge, and marine sediments, paper mills, chemical companies are just a few of the clients that have benefited from this process.

Hydraulic Dredging in to textile tubes, how it works:
1. Containment: High strength permeable tubes with uniquely designed retention properties are fabricated tubes that can be filled with sand, sediments,  fine grain sludge, hazardous contaminated soils, or dredged waste materials

2. Dewatering: Excess water drains from the tubes through the small pores resulting in effective dewatering and efficient volume reduction of the contained material. This volume reduction allows for the repeated filling of the tubes. In most cases the water is of a quality that can be returned to native waterways or for reuse. 

3. Consolidation: After the final cycle of filling and dewatering, the retained sediments, sludge, sand  materials can continue to consolidate by evaporation as the water escapes through the tube. 

4. Removal or use as Erosion control or Landscape: Once the sediments dry within the bag, they bags are opened and the sediments can be hauled off. Or can be used as erosion control or covered and made part of the landscape. If hazardous it taken to offsite facility.

Adding a Polymer to the Hydraulic Dredging and geo textile or tube process:
Some projects may require a Polymer additive during the sediment removal process, once the sediments are transferred from the small or large hydraulic dredging machine. This can be very useful when targeting to remove certain nutrients from the sediments, like phosphate.

During the sediment removal process there are a variety of polymers that are available and formulated to match the sediment or sludge material being dredged or dewatered. The use of the polymer allows the sediments and tube technology to perform efficiently together, most cases allows the sediments to cure faster into a solid material. The solids are separated from the water more easily, which can allow the water to drain quicker for the tube. www.sedimentremovalservices.com.

2. Pond Tips--Deeper Water Depths Good for fish
Attain proper water depths and taper the shorelines, for good and long term erosion control. Add an erosion control matt and stone or rip rap stone for maximum benefits. Good depths with help with less aquatic vegetation growth. While dredging the pond good water depths are important if you would like to successfully sustain a healthy fish population.

1001264.jpg  1001274.jpg  Pond dredging contractor www.swampthing.us

3. Pond Tips--Add Oxygen by diffusers, fountains and Native Aquatic Plants
Once your pond has been dredged, now you want to put in measures to keep your pond healthy. One key factor is quality oxygen levels that promote a healthy ecosystem either by adding a fountain, diffuser system or bubbling system. Oxygen is very important for the health of your fish, too little oxygen will add stress to your fish and off course eventually kill them. Poor oxygen levels can come from too much vegetation within your pond. It's important to keep a moderate amount of native aquatic plants within the pond and along the shorelines as a rule. Along the shoreline is appealing to the eye and also helps as a buffer to filter incoming water into the pond from surrounding areas.

Pond Tip - Oxygen is important:
Pond Aeration and Floating fountains for lakes and ponds.

Floating fountains are not only beautiful but are also effective to keep the green away and provide aeration to the water. There are many options and styles. Easy set up - just add water. Lights available too. Contact us for more style, design and pricing information via email

Water fountains add sight and sound to pond aeration. Everyone has different fountain needs ; decorative, aeration, controlling temperature or just for the sound and atmosphere they provide. From a deck or lawn chair to the fairways of golf clubs, water fountains have more to offer. Again, by  adding oxygen to the water, fish and water quality will be improved. Oxygen helps to generate beneficial bacteria that consume the nutrients algae uses to grow.

To ensure years of enjoyment from your lakefront or pond, a user-friendly maintenance plan is essential. Our people are dedicated to helping you gain the utmost benefit from your investment. Fish habitat, weeds control and water quality is all addressed through a consultation. 

Simply, by using a pond aeration system, you can move vast amounts of water per minute and at the same time improving the water quality and nutrient loads. Large or small ponds can be aerated to reduce the mosquito population. Stagnant water is where they like to lay their eggs.

Pond Dredging
If your pond or lake is too shallow it might be too late for aeration, you may need to dredge first. Especially if you have had a fish kill or large amount of vegetation taking oxygen from your lake or pond. Fish Kills also can be a result of misuse of chemicals/herbicides.
