What Is Dredging?
Coston Marine Services Inc has provided premier dredging services to South Florida residents since 1996. Dredging is the excavation of silt and other material from the bottom of bodies of water. Dredging can also remove naturally-deposited sediments or man-made debris. We dig up sediments from the bottoms of lakes, rivers, harbors, and other water bodies for disposal elsewhere. Dredging ensures the safe passage of boats and ships through navigation channels, anchorages, and berthing areas. The process becomes necessary after constantly changing tides, wave action, and currents cause bodies of water to fill with sand and silt, making waterway access and maneuverability difficult, and sometimes even dangerous, to achieve.
The Benefits of Dredging
Dredging provides numerous benefits to residential and commercial waterfront property owners, as well as the environment. Our process:
- Widens and deepens waterways, which can increase the value of waterfront properties
- Reduces the exposure of fish, wildlife, and people to contaminants
- Maintains or increases the depth of navigation channels, anchorages, or berthing areas to ensure the safe passage of boats and ships
- Helps preserve underwater flora and fauna
