Dredging to Remove Sludge and Muck From Ponds and Other Bodies of Water
Sludge is that thick, soft, viscous muck that can develop at the bottom of a waterbody over time. Any excess sludge accumulation can reduce the water volume in the body of water, jeopardize the health of the aquatic wildlife and pose numerous environmental hazards. Sludge can also produce a foul odor that can make visiting or working near the waterbody and unpleasant experience.
How to Implement the Sludge Removal Process
There are several ways to remove sludge from a waterbody. Dredging entails the use of a specialized machine that suctions the sludge from the bottom. A sludge removal pump can propel a wide variety of viscous materials to the surface for disposal. Aeration systems circulate the water and infuse it with oxygen, which promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria that consume the nutrients that lead to muck accumulation.
