Dredging of Coal Ash Ponds & Lagoons for Power Plants

Removal of settled ash material (CCR) from a coal ash pond at a power plant is often accomplished by dredging - either through hydraulic dredging or through excavation.

C&M Dredging can work with your facility to manage your CCR removal project, whether to increase storage capacity in active ponds and basins or for closure purposes. We accomplish this through hydraulic or mechanical dredging, utilizing a range of dewatering methods.

Contact C&M Dredging today to discuss a solution for the industrial dredging of your power plant's coal ash pond or lagoon.

Hurricane Damage Restoration

Florida Keys


  • Remote Island Location 3 miles from mainland in FL Keys
  • Hydraulic Dredging to Geotextile tubes
  • Automated Polymer Injection System for Material Dewatering and Clean Effluent Requirements
  • Dewatering site constructed on sectional barge at island location
  • Dredging, Dewatering, Hauling and Disposal all simultaneously
  • Geotextile tubes transported by barge back to mainland daily for offloading into trucks
  • Sensitive Marine Benthic Resource avoidance and protection integral part of project requirements


C&M Dredging performed an environmental restoration dredging project to reverse impacts caused by hurricane damage to an island resort in the Florida Keys. A canal system and basin system that was in place for barges and vessels that serviced the island resort daily had been filled in by hurricane-force winds and tidal surge.

The difficulty was that the project site was 3 miles from the mainland, on an island.
