Knoxville Barge, a subsidiary of Brownlee Construction, is a full-service marine construction business, providing everything you need to maintain your waterfront property at peak condition.

Benefits of Mechanical Dredging

For shallow water at your dock or shoreline changes, our trained professionals often use mechanical dredging to great advantage. Mechanical dredging uses stationary machinery and normally a bucket device to excavate loose silt and sediment. Both rocky and soft shorelines will support the weight of the equipment and can often benefit from dredging.

The process can:

  • Prevent erosion of your shoreline
  • Make boating access easier and safer
  • Improve the quality of water at your dock and shoreline
  • Remove silt and sediments
  • Improve your shoreline to support the construction of a dock

Knoxville Barge’s Unsurpassed Customer Satisfaction

As a family-owned company with almost 40 years of experience with the waterways in the area, we have earned a reputation for unsurpassed customer satisfaction that we continually strive to preserve. Knoxville Barge serves property owners of Fort Loudoun Lake, Tellico Lake, and the Tennessee River Valley.

In order to ensure the highest quality results, we do all our work ourselves and never use subcontractors or day laborers. In addition, each customer communicates with only one Knoxville Barge representative instead of being shunted from department to department as the work progresses. You have the opportunity to develop a relationship of trust with your company representative, and you know exactly whom to contact with questions.

In addition, you can rely on our decades of experience to usher you through the red tape:

  • We know which permits are needed and where to apply for them;
  • We know and understand the regulations of the TVA Act so you can be assured your project is designed and built in compliance; and
  • We deal with only the finest quality supplies and have developed great relationships with our vendors.

Our knowledge of local waterways and decades of experience will produce professional results and a trouble-free project that will benefit you and your property for a long time.

We serve property owners in many towns, communities, and subdivisions along the Tennessee River and Tellico and Fort Loudoun lakes.
