American Underwater Services prides itself in dredging—the removal of sediments or other small material from a body of water. Dredging is often key to maintaining a waterbody’s navigability, environmental sustainability, cleanliness or usability.
Indeed, dredging is commonly associated with a number of important projects. It may be needed before creating a new harbor or waterway—or to modify existing waterways to accommodate shipping. It can also be a key prerequisite to the construction of bridges, docks or anything else that entails an underwater foundation.
Dredging can also be used in the acquisition of specific materials: sand and gravel for construction, natural metals or valuable substances like gold and diamond. The dredging process can even be a simple matter of maintenance, particularly when the accumulation of sand or mud has inhibited navigation.
In addition to handling such projects with expertise, efficiency and cost-effectiveness, we are also ready to handle a wide variety of clients and situations. Put simply, if you know of water that needs to be dredged or cleaned in any way, we are here to help.
Our dredging and cleaning services include freshwater or seawater projects. And we handle every phase of the process, including any need for disposal.

Pond Dredging Services for Homeowners Associations (HOAs) and Homeowners
Homeowners and Home Owners Associations may require dredging for any number of reasons. Many communities located near waterbodies (manmade or otherwise) have a vested interest in ensuring boats can safely navigate the area. Boat access alone can raise the value of properties whether an individual homeowner has a boat or not. The accumulation of silt can also impact fishing and a range of recreational activities.
At minimum, dredging may be integral to simply keeping ponds or lakes healthy and clean. We take any HOA dredging project or homeowner project every bit as seriously as when handling large industrial jobs.
