Providing Comprehensive Environmental Services for North America
Surface impoundments and storage tanks containing built up sludge can limit the effectiveness of your wastewater treatment system. Clean Harbors’ ability to safely remove the sludge and reduce the volume of waste through the use of specialized dredging and dewatering equipment can improve the efficiency of your wastewater treatment system and provide significant cost savings.
Clean Harbors provides dewatering and pressing services in settling ponds associated with wastewater treatment systems surface impoundments. Floating dredges utilize cable and winch conveyance systems to systematically move across surface impoundments for precise waste removal operations. With dredging capabilities up to 15 feet, waste can be pumped great distances to the dewatering system location and processed with recessed chamber presses, membrane presses, and centrifuges.
Clean Harbors' treatability lab processes representative samples of tank and surface impoundment waste and performs bench scale treatability studies to determine the most cost- effective chemistry and dewatering technology to manage your waste. Our lab provides key waste characteristics that are integral to the preparation of a comprehensive proposal and successful job execution.
