Dewatering silt bags remove sediment or sludge from lakes and ponds by pumping contaminated water directly into large dewatering bags. Silt bags for dewatering will make sure all silt stays in one place for quick disposal, while clean water stays on site.
Each silt bag can hold between 1 and 15 cubic yards of material, depending on sizing. Most options range from 4 by 6 feet to 15 by 25 feet. They are typically placed on the ground in the dewatering area but can also be kept on trucks for easy transportation. Custom sludge dewatering bags are also available. However, for particularly large dewatering projects, dewatering tubes are recommended.
