Dewatering is the process of removing water from solid materials, such as silt and sediment . Many cities use dewatering products to remove sediment build up from public lakes and stormwater retention ponds. For counties and municipalities with canal systems, regular dredging keeps the waterways prepared for water overflow due to extreme weather conditions. The dewatering process also works to remove contaminants from local ecosystems and navigable rivers, protecting animals and residents.
Determining the right dewatering products for your city's needs depends on a few site conditions:
- Volume of Liquid
- Type of Sediment or Silt
- Pump Flow Rate
