What Is Dredging?

Dredging is the process of removing sediment, buildup, and waste from the bottom of water bodies like lakes, rivers, and estuaries. Sediment naturally occurs when silt, sand, and other minerals and materials aggregate and accumulate. In waterways with high traffic, this poses a safety risk. For example, if too much sediment accumulates in a river, it may make it impassable for ships that could otherwise pass.

Safety in Dredging

Dredging safety is a critical component of any reputable dredging company. There are risks to every dredging project and Veit incorporates extensive planning and analysis ahead of any work. Common hazards include environmental restrictions, changing weather, and project-specific difficulties.

That’s why Veit maintains high safety standards, including our dedicated crew training programs and our rigorous adherence to equipment maintenance protocols to ensure each project is safe, successful, and efficient.
