Five Dredge and Marine does many different types of dredging projects, hydraulic dredging is the most used. Our hydraulic dredges have a cutting head to dislodge sediment which is then immediately suctioned through the pump ladder. This diluted sediment is then pumped through a flexible, floating pipe to a covered floating barge, or directly to an on-land dewatering site. This is where the sediment is allowed to settle out of the water and then the spoils can be removed or re-purposed.
Maintenance Dredging by Five Dredge and Marine
Often time’s sediments reclaim previously Five Dredge and Marine dredges canals, waterways, and channels. Our services range from restoring one personal boat slip to an entire community’s waterways back to a navigable condition. We also perform maintenance dredging services at drainage canals, bank stabilization, weed and trash aqua harvesting. These efforts can be accomplished hydraulically or mechanically depending on site requirements and conditions.
Mechanical Dredging by Five Dredge and Marine
Our long arm excavators or waterborne barge mounted excavators use a set of mechanical arms with a bucket attached at the end to dig material from the bottom surface and dump the material into a land based stockpile, container or onto a barge to be transported.
Turbidity Monitoring / Environmental / Safety by Five Dredge and Marine
As needed, turbidity monitoring of the effects of dredging operation occurs in order to keep any re-suspension and transport under control. These monitoring efforts allow project managers to respond if re-suspended sediment levels exceed pre-established parameters by slowing down or altering the dredging. Implementing environmental monitoring of specific marine species such as mantes and adhering to OSHEA standards of safety on every project helps to ensure your project is mishap free.
