Canal Dredging

canal-dredgingAs we start to see an increase in rainfall, it’s not  just rivers that are affected and dredging of our canals becomes important to help handle the increased volumes of water flowing into them from seasonal rainfall.

Silt  in canals can build up for a number of reasons, these are just some of the causes;

  • Increased solid input from ground drainage
  • Unmanaged vegetation
  • Erosion

Heathland Aquatic Engineering has a large fleet of machinery designed to deal with the build up of silt and mud in your canals and we can also remove silt from areas which are inaccessible from the canal banks.  We are able to handle projects of any size using our long reach excavators or floating hydraulic dredgers. We can also provide accurate surveys of the location that requires dredging prior to tendering for any work, using our specialist scanning and mapping applications.

Our canal consultancy services are available to anyone and we can liaise with the local authority thus providing a full project management service from the beginning to the end of the canal project.
