Dredging is a process that Genflo specialises on. It involves the removal of silt, mud, sludge, sediment, debris and other material from bodies of water such as lakes, dams, rivers, estuaries, ponds and harbours.

The buildup of sediment is caused by loose silt, sand or sediments washing down channels and/or rivers and other water sources that gradually fill up these bodies of water.

By making use of dredging a service, the unwanted material is removed from the bottom of the relevant body of water and disposed of as per the client’s request.

The various different discharge facility options include, but are not limited to us pumping into; coffer dams, adjacent dams, slimes dams, filling up borrow pits, Geobags, Geodams, e.t.c.
