Sediment buildup impairs the natural hydraulics and ecology within water bodies, and is often contaminated, posing environmental risks. Dredging is integral to a variety of ecological improvement projects, removing and managing unwanted sediment.
Dredging can be an effective solution to restore flow, improve water quality, and increase benthic habitat, benefiting aquatic ecosystems while improving surface water aesthetics and reducing flood risks.
SumCo Eco-Contracting’s dredging experience includes harbor, river, channel, stream, creek, pond, lake, wetland, marsh and bog dredges for private clients and municipal, state and federal agencies. We are experienced in technical water control methods, sediment disposal/deposition, and working in and around fragile resource areas to restore bodies of water.
