SaskAlta’s specialized excavator dredge can do anything an excavator can do except on the water! Our excavator dredge specializes in cleaning and restoring waterways, cleaning ponds, controlling vegetation, installing water pipes, preventing and breaking ice jams, and environmental remediation. SaskAlta’s dredge are also made to work in small environments which is helpful for dredging of marinas and wharfs.
With the newest technology for Land Injection, SaskAlta utilizes a no-till, full cover, vapor injection system. This system involves the use of a frac tank which removes/filters non-organic solids, producing an environmentally safe organic fertilizer. Land Injection safely recycles biosolids for the benefit of farms, forests and landscaping.
Industrial/commercial facilities and municipalities concerned with sewer and water by-pass systems, water filtration, and/or site dewatering and flood control, can count on SaskAlta to transfer water or effluent through portable pipelines to distant locations. SaskAlta also provides equipment and staff to manage long distance slurry transportation, as well as emergency water transfer for municipal, industrial mining and forestry industries.
Geo Bags are proven to be one of the most effective methods of dewatering, using an intermittent filling and drying cycle. This method eliminates seasonal restraints that occur when using the Land Injection method. The process involves the slurry being pumped out of the lagoon/pond(s) and injected with a polymer at a specific rate to coagulate the small particles to assure that they remain in the Geo Bags. After the Geo Bags have been filled to capacity, dewatering will continue until the material is considered dewatered and can be transferred to a landfill or designated disposal site.
A hydrographic survey involves surveying the top of the residual layer (sludge, bio solids, industrial waste/byproducts,) using sonar technology and measuring its thickness across the surface area of the lagoon/pond(s). Using Hydrographic Survey Equipment, SaskAlta is able to analysis the data, calculating volumes and producing a 3D image of the lagoon/pond(s). The 3D image shows the residual accumulation zones.
