Manage your waterways by scheduling maintenance dredging. The build-up of sand and silt into the waterway can decrease the water depth. Larger ships cannot pass through water systems that are not routinely maintained. Maintenance dredging ensures that all water is at a proper navigable depth.
Areas That Need Maintenance Dredging
Maintenance dredging is often used for channels and docks to create room for ships and other vessels. Turning basins are also commonly dredged to ensure that ships have the proper space to make sharp turns and reverse directions. River systems are also routinely dredged through maintenance dredging to keep consistent depths.
