Do you know how destructive traditional dredging methods can be?

Do you know that the “empty-scrape-refill” method is even more destructive to the ecosystem?

We know a better way…

 

Our machine causes no harm.

The machine used by Dam-It Dredging has excellent weight distribution, making it ideal for working in sensitive areas where the preservation of banks and surrounding areas is important. All work is done from inside the dam/ canal/ waterway or river.

Attachments changeable from the water.

The various attachments that the machine requires are placed on the banks of the dam and are interchangeable without the machine needing to exit the water.

Silt Removal Process: Silt Pumped or Bagged

Dredging is the process of removing silt build-up from the bottom of dams/canals/waterways and rivers through the use of a high powered suction pump and hose. This increases the water volume and helps prevent weed growth. This process is especially important for irrigation dams where water volume is a priority. The dredger is able to pump the silt up to 300m away from the dam or into de-watering bags.

Better than destructive traditional methods

Silt neatly and non-destructively pumped into de-watering bags by Dam-It for removal.

The most popular method used to remove silt and weeds was to drain the entire dam, wait for it to dry, and then use excavators or TLB’s.

These methods are extremely destructive to the surrounding area and further jeopardizes or totally destroys the already struggling ecosystem (flora and fauna).

We found Marc and his team to be honest, reliable and with an excellent work ethic.  I would highly recommend Dam-lt to carry out similar works in the future.  Further we plan to use Dam-lt on a regular basis as the dam silts up again.

We were very satisfied with the quality of the work that has been done and as such will have no reservation in recommending him for applicable dredging work.

The work Marc did was very successful in removing enough sludge and mud to increase or water storage ond this was done in the allocated time frame with no damage to the golf course. Marc and his team have a good understanding of golf and how twork on a golf course without interferring with the members.
