ok I read it all now... heres my question. how in gods green earth are you going to use a suction dredge on a lake that has no water where the sediment is? are we just going to wait until the water comes back up?

He is going to come in from the water and work his way in. Dredge probably only needs a foot of water to float in.

Is the lake low because of the drought ? or just drawn down for another reason?

Dirtman is probably the most knowledgable person here --on this subject--:-) with first hand experience from many different directions, so I would listen carefully to his advice.....I just wish he were closer to me, as I have ongoing project, and would certainly like to work with him... they are not all that big, but to me `nasty scary ones`....Everytime I go to his blog, the first thing that pops up is his excavator --mired in deep mud...makes me take a breath :-) Tony

Is the water from the dredge being pumped ashore into baker tanks for the sediment to settle , or into filter bags to hold the sediment and allow the water to settle out? If not you are going to have a big problem handling the water . All the sediment becomes suspended in the water and will just go right back into the pond with the water.

Not to pile on, but I sure hope that dredge extends back from that picture another 30-40 ft and that we are looking at it from the stern! That's the wierdest (and smallest) looking dredge I have ever seen that is to be used to pump mud 1000+ ft.

In all seriousness, I hope you got this guy with the dredge to sign some sort of subcontract agreement with you that he is only paid if he completes the project and does not cause more damage to this already delicate situation. Do you have any videos of this "dredge" in action?
