Before desilting

Lake & Pond Desilting: Silt dredging is an invasive, expensive & often environmentally unfriendly form of silt removal.

Silt dredging usually involves heavy machinery, digging the silt up & then placing it in heavy trucks. This is then moved to another location.

Due to the amount of machinary & manpower required, the environmental impact of such operations can be huge. Silt dredging is a very expensive process even for small lakes or ponds.

Silt pumping is a better solution to the traditional dredging method. It removes the silt from your lake, pond or river using suction pumps. This method lifts the silt & transfers it to another location. The silt can be contained in a holding tank, or subject to chemical analysis, can be spread on nearby land. This provides an added benefit in the form a nutrient laden fertiliser for crops or other vegetation.
