Benefits of River & Lake Dredging in Lenoir City

Dredging creates a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable shoreline that is easier to use for boating and dock construction. Just like canals get dredged for commercial boats to pass through, your waterfront property may need dredging to create a deep enough water for your boat to dock.

If you have a shallow, silty, muddy, or eroding shoreline, talk to the experts at Knoxville Barge about your dredging options. Our dredging and shoreline stabilization services in Lenoir City provide many benefits, such as:

  • Shoreline erosion prevention
  • Safer water levels for boat access
  • Improved water quality
  • Removal of silt and sediments
  • Better shorelines for dock construction

Mechanical & Hydraulic Dredging on the Tennessee River

At Knoxville Barge, we can provide both mechanical dredging and hydraulic dredging, which are the two most popular types of dredging.

  • Mechanical dredging uses machinery to excavate the loose silt and sediment. Mechanical dredges are possible for a wide variety of locations and for both soft and rocky shorelines.
  • Hydraulic dredging uses a vacuum-like system to remove sediment. Hydraulic dredging can be less expensive and faster, but it may be prohibited or not feasible in certain locations.
