Dredging is the removal of sediments and debris from the bottom of lakes, rivers, harbors, and other water bodies.

Commercial / Residential

Our experience and cutting edge equipment allows us to be prepared for jobs of all types and sizes. From residential to commercial, we have the solution for your needs.

Who We Serve

This service allows for the waterways and ports to be navigable, it also assists in coastal protection. Ideal for maintenance services to keep the waterway safe.

Find the Right Dredging for you...

Lake and Pond Dredging

Eco Waterway Services can service your ponds beyond just removing unwanted vegetation. Highly decayed vegetation and other organic material eventually turn into sediment, muck, that mushy stuff that can sometimes swallow your legs. ECO can dredge to remove that material and clean up the funk accumulating at your shorelines.

Although dredging a lake or pond can present unique challenges, and all sites have their own roster of guidelines to abide by such as permitting (of non-private waters), limited accessibility, years of sediment fill-in from run-off, accumulated expired vegetation, and tree debris, Eco Waterways excels at overcoming these challenged situations. We are motivated, innovative, experienced, and equipped using our mechanically and hydraulically powered suction-head dredge that removes muck from your pond, lagoon, or lake. Standard procedures are in place to limit disturbance to your property and to limit disturbance of aquatic life in and surrounding waters as well!

Marina Dredging

Maintenance dredging is important in marina settings to maintain adequate water depths for boat slips and navigation approaches for vessels of all sizes. Accumulation of sediment and debris in these areas is unavoidable and often even predictable. Dredging the marina on a regular basis is recommended for a variety of reasons:

  • Uninterrupted use of marina and worry-free accessibility
  • Ability to plan both for business cost and short-term slip closings

Eco Waterway services boasts the technology and expertise to offer newer advanced removal methods and efficient and creative solutions to maintaining your waterbody beds. Our equipment offers maneuverability and accessibility, allowing us to dredge slips in a timely manner. As a result, you are not forced to berth vessels and reduce your revenue.

Our hydraulically powered suction head dredge collects sediment from the lake or bay bottom and our diver assisted weed suction services can remove the plants by their roots. Our method is proven to be an effective solution that rivals simply cutting vegetation. Cutting vegetation can in fact intensify your sediment problem by leaving more organic material behind that can eventually grow back via stranded fragments or add to accumulating debris.

Our equipment and team give the advantage of:

  • protection and invigoration of aquatic habitat and water quality
  • removal of unhealthy muck
  • boat slip accessibility maintenance
  • reduction of unanticipated obstructed water traffic

River, Channel and Canal Dredging

Dredging on a river, channel or canal requires knowledge of environmental regulations and navigation experience. Compliance with DNR and other regulatory establishments is key to successful projects and limiting unintended damages.

Sediment removal from navigation channels and irrigation channels leading to lakes, marinas, boat docks and private homes have become more common projects. We own and operate hydraulic vacuum dredges specifically designed to work in narrow channels, rivers, and canals.

Performing these projects with a hydraulic dredge allows the material to be moved several thousand feet away from the work area. Control measures like silt curtains are installed to contain inevitable escaping silt material and protect the waters around the project site.

We provide solutions even for the most complex situations and will consult with you to determine the best solution to meets your needs and comply with environmental protection laws.
