Hydraulic Dredging Services

usa-dredge-1-approved

Our dredging services are offered throughout Florida, the Bahamas and Exumas and the Caribbean Islands and the process consists of dredging to remove silt and sand buildup or deepening navigation channels and harbors or marinas, as well as removal of aguatic vegetation. The spoils from dredging are dewatered in either constructed holding cells or pumped into Geotextile Tubes and Bags unless otherwise indicated on the project specifications.

Excavation of Sediment

Dredging Excavation is the process of dislocating and removing of silt or sediments from the bottom of the coastal waterway, dam, lake or river. Our services include using a hydraulic dredger to remove the soil, silt, rocks or sediment.

Transporting Excavated Materials

Southern Dreding & Marine can relocate materials from the site being dredged to the location where it will be used, or transport the materials to be disposed or treated by one of the following methods: (a) in the the dredge; (b) by barge; (c) by pumping through pipelines; (d) by filling geotextile tubes; and (e) using natural force of waves. Trucking is occasionally used. The removal of silt or sediment is determined by the type of dredge used on the project. Our services are offered in the Caribbean Islands such as Dominican Republic, Cayman Islands, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Barbados, Antigua, Anguilla, Aruba, Martinique, Grenada, Belize and Guadeloupe, as well as in Florida.

Mechanical Dredging

Southern Dreding & Marine offers Mechanical Dredging when the project calls for it, in addition to Hydraulic Dredging. We can bring long arm excavators loaded onto a barge to remove rock and virgin ground if needed. Please contact us for more information. Our services are offered in the Caribbean Islands such as Dominican Republic, Cayman Islands, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Barbados, Antigua, Anguilla, Aruba, Martinique, Grenada, Belize and Guadeloupe, as well as in Florida.

Coastal Shorelines, River & Lake Dredging

When dredging lakes, rivers or coastal shorelines, we are thoughtful of environmental and aesthetic issues relating to commercial, residential and recreational aquatic areas. We take extra caution to keep our work areas clean and well-maintained in order to protect the shoreline as much as possible. With either natural and manmade lakes, erosion of sediment can gradually build up and cause problems with depth and water quality. This build up can not only affect recreational activities, but also aquatic life. Another issue is Industrial runoff whic can cause contamination of the water. Our dredges are used to maintain lake depths and clean up contaminated material. Our services include Storm water detention ponds, dredging Sediment removal, retention Basin maintenance, ponds, reservoirs, lagoons, the Southeastern portion of the United States including Florida, the Caribbean Islands.

Dredging Ports, Harbors & Marinas

This is extremely important for the safety of vessels using the marina and its waterways to avoid damage. Regular dredging is a must and assures boaters the ability to move freely in and out of these passages without damage Keeping a marina or canal clear can also benefit both business and ecosytems upstream from where the dredging takes place. Keeping the approach channels to a port open or creating a new facility can benefit the local economy on many levels.
