Dredging with Dewatering Bags
Customer Testimonial About Dredge Dewatering
My company, Nevada Golf Balls, took over a dredging job for a golf course in Nevada during the winter of 2008-09. Their lake had a liner in it for 15 years that was built up with leaves and grass. Tulips, very common in this area, also grew in the lake. The main problems were the odor and the aesthetic of the landscape. The golf course was very concerned about the project procedure, the increasing odor when we would pump out the water, and how the whole landscape overall would appear.
With Taurus Dewatering Bags, we could offer a great solution to our customer. With the pumps, we vacuumed the bottom of the lake, filling the sludge bags every day. We made it a perfect dredging job with dewatering bags. We were able to finish the job on time. Our job site looked clean, professional, and the odor didn't increase at all.
We just started this new business entity and it was our first job so it was very important for us to be successful. We searched for qualified technical support and products online. Mark Wilkie from GEI Works was able to confirm our ideas and suggested the use of dewatering bags. What Mark’s solution was and what happened in reality on the job site was exact. Time was a big issue for us, and we were pleased to receive the dewatering bags on time before the project started. Overall, GEI Work's customer service satisfied us in every way. It was a pleasing experience.
Nevada Golf Balls, originally an online golf supply provider, opened up a new business entity and is now available for dredging jobs to salvage golf balls from lakes. Nevada Golf Balls provides their service to golf courses, home owner associations, boat docks, and owners of small lakes. Service areas include Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Idaho, and Washington.

Dewatering bags are an excellent solution for dewatering sludge from ponds, lakes, and lagoons. The silt or sludge is pumped into the bags. The sediment mixture stays in the bag, while the clean water seeps out. Dewatering bags can be placed on the ground near the lake or in nearby containment vehicles for easy transportation. Once full with sludge, the bags are hauled away for disposal or use as compost.
When determining the right dewatering bags to use, there are a number of factors to consider. Conditions to examine when dredge dewatering include pump flow rate, volume of material, and type of sediment. The location itself must also be considered, as sites with steep slopes may cause the bags to roll. For larger, heavy duty jobs, we recommend using Dewatering Tubes.
