Excavating in Delicate Ecosystems

In order to preserve the environment, special precautions need to be taken when excavating in delicate ecosystems. When using special amphibious equipment like marsh excavators to perform such a task, you can rest assured that your ecosystem will be protected. 

In certain circumstances, waterways may be too shallow or otherwise inaccessible with traditional marine equipment, making it nearly impossible to reach for dredging. Forcefully entering the area with equipment that’s not specialized for the job can result in damage to wildlife, fish, and plants that are native to the area.

Thankfully, marsh excavators are perfect when it comes to carefully performing these shallow water operations. At Stan’s, our amphibious equipment works seamlessly with large hydraulic suction dredges that pump silt away from the waterway floor. 

This excess silt and water cannot be discharged into the swamp and marsh, as it is hazardous to the surrounding wildlife and plants. Because of this, we use our equipment to construct levee systems in low-lying areas that contain the excess water and silt. We can also help you construct the pipe systems needed to transport the waste away from the excavation site for removal and disposal.

If you’ve got an upcoming project in a delicate ecosystem like that of a swamp or marshland, fear not. Stan’s marsh excavators are up to the task. With over a decade of experience, we’ve mastered the art of safely excavating in delicate ecosystems. Contact us today to request a quote!
