In both natural and man-made lakes, eroding sediment can gradually build up and cause both depth and water quality issues. This buildup can affect recreational activities as well as aquatic life. Industrial runoff can further contaminate the water.
Ellicott dredges have been used to maintain lake depths and for contaminated material cleanup. Considering these jobs are relatively small in scope, a Series 360SL or Series 370HP would be ideal.
This 670 Dragon® dredge is used to maintain Lake Kittamaqundi in Columbia, MD.
