Industrial Waste and Sediment Removal

Periodically, waste, solids, and residuals must be removed from manufacturing and processing plant ponds and lagoons to ensure regulatory compliance and productivity by improving storage capacity or discharge quality.

C&M Dredging has the equipment and workforce to mobilize quickly and efficiently to dredge your industrial processing water holding pond or lagoon to remove sludge, waste, residuals, and sediment. Whether you have an existing spoil pit, drying bed, or press system, we can work with your current dewatering system, or C&M Dredging can manage the material from dredging to dewatering and final disposal.

We own multiple cutter suction hydraulic dredges, both cable-driven, and self-propelled. Our dredges have special attachments for dredging lined ponds without causing harm to the liner.

C&M Dredging can help you plan your upcoming dredging project from concept through closeout, whether a short term remedy or a long term management plan.

Featured Project

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.
