At Cumberland Marine Works, our dredging process involves four steps: loosening the material, bringing it to the surface, placing it in a container, and transporting it to an approved dump site for disposal.
We comply with all regulations set forth by the Tennessee Water Quality Control Act of 1977 and the Aquatic Resource Alteration Permit or 401 Water Quality requirements. To initiate the dredging process, simply contact us to schedule an on-site visit. Our team will inspect the dock and surrounding area, probing multiple areas to ensure we avoid hitting bedrock. We also measure the current water depth, keeping in mind the water level during the visit (the normal pool is 445). By calculating the necessary material removal to achieve a specific “goal” depth at a normal pool, we can estimate how much material needs to be removed and approximately how many loads this will take. Trust Cumberland Marine Works to handle your dredging needs with precision and expertise.
