W Wall & Sons can also provide the service of “De-Silting” Dams. Excavators, Loaders and Dozers are the equipment used for task of the removal of silt from the dams.
Over time sediments and salts accumulate in dams. This silt can degrade water quality, making it too salty and can also decrease water quantity.
To minimise risk and the financial impact of a major dam failure, it is recommended that desilting, when water levels are very low or dried up, should be done for ongoing dam maintenance.
