NEW ENVIRONMENTAL DREDGING

What's New?  LOts!

Environmentally Conscience Dredging

At SoCal Dredging, we know about the amazing connection that can occur when man goes underwater and restores his world to previous conditions and depths. Dredging can revitalize your marina or lake.  

Sediment Transport and DeWatering

Our state of the art dredges and dewatering systems can help you restore your eutrofied lake or shallow marina to vital functioning systems.

IN THE BEGINNING

Services

it all started at southwestern yacht club in san diego

Our yacht club needed dredging.  While on the Master Plan Committee, I had made a photogrammetric contour map of our club, added depth contours  and calculated volume to be dredged. No dredge contractor would commit. So we bought our first dredge and did the job.

                    LIFE

Life is underwater.  life began eons ago.

underwater.

Many species thrive underwater now.

for many years our waste was dumped into our streams and storm drains which flow into our lakes and oceans.  sEDIMENT ACCUMULATED, SOMETIMES CONTAMINATED BY OUR WASTE, SMOTHERING BENTHIC COMMUNITIES, DECREASING DEPTH AND INITIATING EUTROPHICATION.

NEW DREDGING TECHNOLOGIES ARE FACILITATING THE RESTORATION OF OUR RIVERS, WATERWAYS AND COASTAL REGIONS, LAKES, PONDS AND MARINAS. ENVIRONMENTAL DREDGING, IN CONCERT WITH NEW DE-WATERING SYSTEMS  CAN REMOVE TRASH, WASH AND SCREEN SAND, AND SEPARATE FINES AND CONTAMINANTS,  ALLOWING  BENEFICIAL REUSE OF DREDGE MATERIAL FOR BEACH REPLENISHMENT, CONCRETE  COMPONENTS AND SOIL AMENDMENTS, WHILE REDUCING DEMAND ON OUR LANDFILL SITES, POSSIBLY SAVING COST.
