Dewatering Bags to Remove Sediment

How big of a bag is needed for
Removal of 1000 cubic yards of Sediment?

Question: I need dewatering bags to remove sediment. I need to talk about the these bags. Can you tell me how big a bag I would need if I was thinking of removing 1000cubic yards of sediment?dewatering tube


Thank you for contacting us! When consider the correct sizing for your locations, there are several different factors we would need to know. As a general guideline, the largest dewatering bags to remove sediment that we offer is 15' x 25' and this offers a capacity of 15 cubic yards. Since you will require storage of significantly more sediment, you might want to consider the option of a dewatering tube.

By contrast, dewatering tubes can be as large as 200 feet in length, 45 feet in width and 90 feet in circumference. This is capable of holding a significantly larger amount of sediment and dewatering materials.

There are several factors here that need to be addressed before determining the best option for you location.

We have a questionnaire we can email to you that can help determine what size to use. Some questions this will ask includes:

  • Type of Sediment Being Contained
  • Percent of Solids in Situ
  • Goal Percent Solids
  • Polymers (will they be used, if so, how?)
  • Disposal Methods
  • Available Space

Reference: Removing Fine Clay Particles from Water

I am interested in removing all clay particles for a dredged project. 15% clay in the water, most silt/sand already removed. I have a very high flow rate of 10-15k g/m. I have plenty of land, need way to get rid of clay and meet EPA turbidity test.
