Providing access to larger vessels is the main goal of deepening dredging. This process includes dredging the bottom of the waterway to create more depth. Deepening dredging also refers to the widening of a waterway by dredging the banks when available. Creating more depth and width in a waterway allows larger and wider vessels to access ports that were unreachable before by creating more overall volume.
Options for Sand Deposit
When a waterway is deepened through depth or width, there will be a lot of sand removed from the waterway itself. Encore Dredging Partners has multiple options for sand removal. You can choose to have the sand redistributed to the beach or in another area to create a sandbar.
