The Difference Between Hydraulic Dredging & Mechanical ...

Mechanical dredging projects are typically located near a shoreline. They traditionally require several pieces of support equipment including the primary excavator that mechanically removes the sand and water placing the sand on the shoreline, loaders to move the sand on the shore, and trucks to deposit the sand at a nearby processing plant.
