Silt pumping and aquatic weed control
By Naiad Pond Services - Working with water since 1980
The business end (and the nasty bit) of silt pumping. It is not necessary to dewater the pond to pump out the silt but where possible, it makes the job quicker.
Silt being pumped from a shallow lake with water retained during the operation.
Pumping the silt from the pond is usually easier than dealing with it once it is removed. Here, bunds have been created to retain the silt until it dries out and can be handled by machinery.
Weed suppressing polythene sheeting is being removed from a very large pond.
Having removed aquatic weed by hand, a black polythene sheet, which will be weighted down onto the bottom of the pond, is being introduced to the pond to shade out and limit regrowth for a season.
More dirty work
We clean out smaller ponds too. (Usually by hand.)
