Different Types of Dredging

Hydraulic Hydraulic dredging focuses on pumping the dredge material from the excavation site to a processing site where the materials are sifted and stored.
Mechanical Mechanical dredging involves the use of an excavator or another type of heavy equipment, usually situated on a barge or on the water's edge, to dig out the bed of the body of water and remove the sediment. The sediment is then hauled away for disposal.

What Is Dredging?

Dredging is needed when sediment, sand, silt, and other materials accumulate in bodies of water such as lakes, harbors, rivers, and estuaries. By relocating the dredged material, it can improve safety, environmental impacts, and the habitat. This process may involve hydraulic or mechanical methods for moving the material to its new designated location.

Veit offers dredging services nationally for lakes, rivers, lagoons, intercoastal waterways, marinas, oil refineries, power plants, and wastewater treatment plants.

Constructing a settling basin is a cost-effective method to separate sediment from water in hydraulic dredging operations. When using this technique, the sediment settles to the bottom of the basin while the clean water flows back to the body of water. This approach enables effective sediment separation and provides opportunities for utilizing the dredged material in This approach enables effective sediment separation and provides opportunities for utilizing the dredged material in the future.


Geotextile tubes are a method for separating water from sediment during dredging. Sediment is captured in the tube while clean water passes through the membrane. The result is a solid mass of dewatered sediment that can be disposed of or repurposed. Geotextile tubes are useful on projects with limited space for settling areas.
