Large Scale Dredging Projects

Large scale dredging operations, where flow rates can exceed 20,000 GPM, require specific treatment systems. Here is a list of important things to remember when handling these situations:

It is crucial that the bulk sediment is settled out before treatment; leaving only turbid water, not mud.

Adequate mixing is imperative. Flocculation begins when water moves over and around the Floc Logs.

Provide a settling pond collects the flocculated particulate that settles out of the water leaving clean water for discharge.

A particle collection system is very useful for catching the fine floating particulate that might not have settled in the settling pond.
