River Dredging

River dredging is a form of river restoration and river maintenance. Over time, sand, silt and debris flow downstream. This is a natural phenomenon, which happens due to weathering, erosion and rivers carrying sediments. If not maintained, the materials accumulate and restricts natural river flow. As a result, rivers become inaccessible to larger ships. It is vital to maintain natural river flow and appropriate water depth to minimize risk of potential disasters.
