Layfield Geotube Hydraulic Dredging - City of Vaughan

August 5, 2015

Toronto, Ontario

Layfield Environmental Containment is pleased to announce the successful completion of the dredging of a storm water pond located in the City of Vaughan (Greater Toronto Area), Ontario. The scope of the project included the dredging of Pond 4 and was carried out successfully and as planned with the removal of 1300 m3 of sediment.  The total volume of sediment-laden pond water removed by the hydraulic dredge was 4,336 m3. Layfield was selected for this project based on their ability to provide an environmentally sound solution using a polymer assisted hydraulic dredging solution using Geotube® technology, which provided significantly less impact on the environment and the surrounding areas. 

Geotube® sediment dewatering tubes in combination with polymer technology facilitated water clarification and sediment consolidation during the storm water pond cleanout. The project was carried out as planned and on budget, with no significant delays reported by the project team.
