Sediment Removal

Ecological Solutions Inc. (ECS) utilizes the most technologically advanced equipment on the market for accumulated sediment removal in lakes and ponds. ECS employs a Dino Six as their sediment removal equipment.The DINO Six is a uniquely portable sediment removal system developed to perform jobs inaccessible to other equipment such as: lakes, ponds, and detention basins. Although the DINO Six is a lightweight piece of machinery, it is made of elements and materials that are tougher and longer lasting than those of other sediment removal equipment.

Weighing only 3,000 pounds, mobilization costs are a fraction compared to other sediment removal techniques. The launching  is more like a boat than conventional dredge/excavator equipment. Therefore, there is no damage to the shoreline.

The system is easy to operate. Sediment is excavated by a durable, direct-drive cutterhead, and is discharged  through a highly abrasion-resistant, hydraulic submersible pump.

The sediment is removed from the body of water and is pumped into a geotextile fabric tube for dewatering. The sediment that is left in the tube is non hazardous and rich in organics.
