Site Development Dredging

Florida site developers are well aware of the unique challenges of building in our state. Florida's flat terrain and high water table mean tackling drainage issues are of paramount concern with any new development. Prepping land for development might call for fill to be brought to the site to shore up the land, which can be a costly added expense to a project and leads to delays and cost overruns.

C&M Dredging has a solution, an innovative approach to maximizing onsite fill and placement while minimizing import quantities required for large-scale site development projects. Our expert crews can assist land developers by dredging existing lakes on the property to help fill other areas of development. C&M Dredging utilizes equipment to target material inaccessible to conventional earth moving equipment, with no need for dewatering, costing less than importing fill, reducing project costs. Additionally, our approach has much less impact on the surrounding communities, such as less trucking from off-site. There is also less impact on the surrounding environment, such as less dust control and dewatering operations. An added benefit of C&M's approach is that the operation is less affected by rain and other customary weather delays. C&M will work with both developers and site contractors to evaluate your current or upcoming 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.
