Two Ellicott dredges were used for the dredging portion of the Lake Seminole Restoration project in Pinellas County, Florida. The dredges – an Ellicott 670HP 14” conventional cutterhead and an Ellicott 370HP 10” conventional cutterhead – worked in conjunction to remove accumulated organic sediment that had degraded the water quality of the lake. The 684-acre lake was overrun with muck that was choking the nutrients from the water. The only thing that could survive was algae, which was killing off the lake’s fish. To stop and reverse the problem, the dredging portion of the project was slated to remove 900,000...

Two Ellicott® brand dredges were used in combination to help open the navigation channel into Grand Traverse Harbor in Michigan, a project that was completed in July 2020.

During the 19th and 20th centuries, stamp mills on the Keweenaw Peninsula produced 25 million tons of waste, which was legally deposited near Lake Superior. Erosion and currents over the years caused the stamp sand to slowly drift south along the peninsula in Gay, Michigan, creating a black shoreline and clogs in...

January 16, 2020 – Crews representing the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay are onsite awaiting permission to begin dredging the Siuslaw River marina. The Siuslaw marina, operated by the Port of Siuslaw, contains several tons of sediment, mud, and silt that have compiled over ten years, making it challenging for vessels to navigate a five-mile span connecting the Siuslaw River to the Pacific Ocean. The Port of Siuslaw is a publicly charted special district that depends heavily on tourist attractions, such as sport and commercial marinas, a boat launch, an industrial park, and an RV campground for economic development....
