Hydraulic Stormwater Basin Dredging
We specialize in hydraulic dredging, which is a perfect fit for the tight quarters of small retention ponds and stormwater basins. These ponds are usually located in neighborhoods and are surrounded by homes and other structures with no room for heavy equipment.CONTACT US

- Only clean water is returned to the basin
- Easy access to congested areas
- Minimal damage to the surrounding areas, so minimal site restoration needed
- Reduced sludge disposal costs
- Will not damage pond or lagoon liners
- Immediate results
- Environmentally friendly
- No odors
- Sediment containment and reduction in volume
Over the years, we’ve worked with several clients with clogged basins. Meridian Woods Park development in Indianapolis had a severe sedimentation problem in their stormwater basin, leading to a rip-rap lined channel. We were able to help them restore the functionality of their stormwater basin.
“The Highland Green Development in Hendricks County had a basin clogged with sediment and organic material. The situation was complicated by the small area being crisscrossed with dangerous buried gas pipelines. We were able to shoehorn in our small but powerful hydraulic dredge without crossing any of the gas pipelines and successfully pump out the sediment.
In addition to stormwater basin dredging, we also work with waste lagoons, ponds, lakes, marinas, and other waterbodies. Keep in mind that if you’re not sure about the extent of your sediment problem, Heartland Dredging offers bathymetric surveying using sonar and GPS positioning to locate and determine the amount of sediment under the water. If you then decide to move forward with the dredging process, we will credit the amount paid for the survey to the dredging bill.
