Lake Dredging

Lake dredging is different from standard pond cleaning but achieves the same results. Over time, leaves and debris build up in lakes, leading to issues such as murky water, weed and algal blooms, lack of oxygen, decreased water depth and potential fish deaths.

Our lake dredging process follows five simple steps: 

  1. Site visit to assess the lake condition and plan for water drainage.
  2. Temporary relocation of any fish, wildlife, and plants to a safe pool.
  3. Using our expertise and equipment, we dredge the silt from the lake with an appropriately sized excavator.
  4. Whilst the lake is drained, we trim trees and control vegetation to prevent future debris.
  5. After dredging is complete, the lake refills naturally, and we safely return the aquatic life.
