Lake and Pond Environmental Restoration Dredging
C&M Dredging has performed lake and pond environmental restoration dredging projects for a wide variety of clients from Homeowners Associations to Municipalities.
Unlike maintenance dredging for navigational improvement, environmental restoration dredging is typically performed with a single goal in mind, to improve the quality of the water body. This improvement is accomplished by dredging to reverse the negative impacts caused by:
- accumulated decomposed organics and silts
- decomposed vegetation
- overgrowth of invasive vegetation as a result of shallower water
- reduction in oxygenated water and increased water temperatures
- accumulation of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus from decomposition and runoff
Many of these projects require comprehensive material management plans to effectively dredge, dewater, and dispose of large quantities of material.
C&M Dredging can manage your project from planning through disposal (or beneficial reuse) and closeout.
