Our winter projects typically consist of cleaning and maintaining equipment and planning for the upcoming year. However, this past winter we decided to tackle a big lake dredging project for a customer. Our dedicated crew spent hours in the cold working to get this job done!
Dredging is the removal of sediment and debris from the bottom of lakes, rivers, ponds, and other bodies of water. It is a routine necessity for maintenance of waterways. Over time, the accumulation of sediment and muck reduces water quality and impedes water navigation and recreation. Lake dredging is a tried and true solution that can give years back to your waterbody. There are many benefits of lake dredging including:
Our crew used our long reach excavator to dredge out this lake for our customer. This piece of equipment allows us to cover a wide range of land and lake. Several spots of sediment can be tricky to maneuver with large machines and the extended arm can reach those areas without the risk of getting stuck and losing hours of work time. Once the sediment is removed from one area we move along to the next spot to steadily complete the project. This particular project took our crew a little over a week to complete and the customer was extremely satisfied with the results. If you are needing a lake dredged or have another project in mind, give our crew a call today!
