Decontamination dredging at Cap-à-l'Aigle and Pointe-au-Pic
Charlevoix, June 2011 – Ocean Dredging DSM's expertise is called on to use its expertise to restore areas near the wharves at Cap-à-l'Aigle and Pointe-au-Pic in the Charlevoix region. As contaminated sediments are involved, Ocean decides to use a Toyo® submersible pump, specially designed to pump sand. The sediments are sucked up into geotube bags from which the water is extracted, leaving only the solid matter. The dredging waste are disposed of in an authorized site on land.
