Mud/ Sediment Removal

APS Silt Stop® Powders can be used for mud thickening to remove unmanagable muck. Highly saturated soils can be messy and difficult to remove without spilling or dripping.

Apply the soil-specific anionic polymer evenly over the surface of the sediment.  Using the bucket of the removal equipment, stir it into the soil to a maximum of 3 feet deep.  Allow the polymer to react with the soil for 10-20 minutes, the more mixing that is done, the less time this will take.  The polymer will cause the sediment to thicken, allowing for easier removal.
