Commercial Dredging

Gator Dredging has the capabilities to perform Large Canal, Marina, or Pond/Lake dredging projects. Regardless of the size, we have the equipment and experience to dredge navigable canals, marina areas and pond/lake sediment buildup. Our equipment is fully transportable and can be at your project location in no time at all.

Don’t risk getting surprised when a “non-marine” engineer secures a permit for your dredging project only to find out it’s not feasible. Gator Dredging can complete your Florida dredging project from permitting to disposal. We are the experts in all forms of Marine Contracting and Dredging. Our engineers have experience in all forms of dredging—from single slip hydraulic dredging to large underwater earth moving projects.

Save money and time by using Gator Dredging to engineer, permit, and complete your Florida dredging project.

Community / Homeowners Association Services

Gator Dredging has experience working with communities to develop solutions for drainage maintenance challenges. Our engineers can design specific plans and projects to satisfy your community’s needs. Feasibility studies, inspections and surveys are commonly performed to determine the best solutions for your community, whether it be dredging, maintaining/replacing infrastructure or creating a long term maintenance plan.

Pond/Lake Dredging

Gator Dredging has the capabilities to perform Pond/Lake Dredging no matter the size of the project. Overtime, ponds/lakes become overgrown, sediment can accumulate and the pond becomes ineffective. Gator Dredging offers the solution of pond restoration. Dredging or de-mucking can be performed hydraulically or mechanically depending on the type of project. Each Community and its needs are unique and Gator Dredging takes the time to asses each situation and provides quality results with the maximum benefit.

Lake and Pond Dredging can either be done “in the dry” or “in the wet”. Dry dredging involves either partially or completely draining the lake to expose the sediments to drying conditions. Conventional earthmoving equipment such as bulldozers, scrapers, backhoes, and draglines are used to remove the sediment. The equipment either works from shore or moves down to the dewatered lakebed. The sediment may be stockpiled on the shore and then hauled away in dump trucks.

Wet dredging does not involve draining the lake down. The dredging machinery is incorporated onto a floating hull. A cutter with steel blades dislodges the sediments, and a centrifugal pump “sucks up” the muck. This sediment/water mix (called a slurry) is piped to a disposal basin or container on land where the water is drained off and the sediments are left to dry.

Bank Stabilization

Another problem which communities face is pond/lake bank erosion. Gator Dredging offers many bank stabilization methods, typically accomplished through the use of hard structures or softer techniques such as rip rap, revegetation, geotextiles or geoweb. Rip Rap or rock revetment can be an aesthetically pleasing benefit and creates habitat for aquatic life.
