When organic material (algae, weeds) and plant leaves accumulate along the bottom of waterbodies, it often becomes necessary to remove the formation. That is what we do with our silt removal services. Sometimes there are industrial reasons for removing silt, but it is also important for the health of lakes, ponds and rivers and the good things that live in the water.
Absent prompt action, silt can also impact water depth, increase flood risks and create foul odors due to decomposition. It can also clog intake pipes and irrigation systems while posing a real threat to fish and other wildlife. Our pond cleaning services can help avoid these issues.
Using pumps and other resources, American Underwater Services can remove silt from ponds, lakes or other bodies of water. We are also committed to handling projects efficiently, completely and with a keen awareness of environmental impact. We handle the final removal of silt, including the use of on-site solutions that avert the need for potentially expensive off-site removal. We begin any project with a thorough survey that analyzes your situation and the solutions that fit it best.
Silt can removed via a variety of procedures. We can use hydraulic suction pumps that penetrate the sediment and carefully remove it from the bottom of a waterbody while leaving the rest of the ecosystem undisturbed. From there, one increasingly popular method involves the use of de-watering bags that dry the silt and leave it for potential future use as compost in landscaping projects. These kind of solutions are often more cost-effective and successful than traditional mechanical dredging techniques.
With years of experience, field experts and top-of-the-line equipment, American Underwater Services is prepared to address your project needs with an emphasis on efficiency and superior services. No job is too big or too small for our team.
