How do I know if I need mechanical or
Mechanical dredging involves the use of heavy equipment at the shoreline or working off a barge and may or may not involve draining a lake. Hydraulic dredging involves a dredge that floats on the water and pumps the material through a temporary pipeline to an off-site location, often several thousand feet away. This dredge acts like a giant floating vacuum removing sediment very precisely.
