The natural flow of water commonly causes the need for regular dredging local waterways. Other than mining, the most common use for an Ellicott® dredge is maintenance and reservoir dredging. Some cities and municipalities source the community’s water from open air reservoirs. Sometimes these reservoirs silt in or become contaminated with material. Dredging is an efficient and effective way to keep these reserves clean.
Nearly the entire Ellicott® dredge standard product line can be utilized for these projects; from Ellicott®’s smallest 300SL Swinging Dragon® to the large Series 1870 Dragon®.
