Bathymetric Surveying & Dredging Services in Michigan

A pond or other waterbody filled with sediment and organic matter is not just useless, it’s problematic. Many people don’t think about the purpose these waterbodies serve. From controlling storm runoff to helping with irrigation, confined bodies of water in Michigan are important to neighborhoods and communities. Heartland Dredging can make sure the one in your area functions as it should. Contact us at (317) 769-2781 today to set up an appointment.

Professional Pond Dredging

Dredging is one of those jobs that’s better left to the pros. Between expensive machinery and a high-level skill set, it’s not a job for amateurs. Consider this:

  1. Sludge is very sloppy and runny. It contains over 50 percent water, which is not easily removed.
  2. Removing enough water to make the material manageable is difficult and costly.
  3. Access to retention ponds and other small waterbodies is typically very limited, especially in congested areas like cities and housing developments.
  4. Locations for permanent placement of material are limited.

Heartland Dredging has the expertise, experience, and equipment to get the job done. We use eco-friendly hydraulic dredges that can fit in tight places but that still contain the power for lake muck removal. The dredge has a working depth removal of 14 inches to 14 feet and is capable of pumping up to 1,600 gallons per minute for several thousand feet.

Bathymetric Surveys Estimate Accurate Levels of Sediment

Do you need an estimate of how much sediment is in your pond? Schedule a bathymetric survey. Using sonar and GPS positioning, we’ll be able to determine how much sediment is in the lake and where it’s at. If you hire us to pump it out, we’ll then deduct the cost of the survey from your final bill. And at the end of the project, we’ll survey again to verify that the sediment is gone.

We can work with all types of waterbodies in Michigan including ponds, waste lagoons, smaller lakes, marinas, and stormwater basins. For more information, read our About and FAQ pages.
