Regulatory Acceptance

SedCon® Turbo Systems function by boosting the speed of passing water currents thereby preventing sediment from settling in a berthing area. This replicates the natural, near-bottom condition that existed in the berth prior to its initial dredging. This is a dramatic difference from maintenance dredging which releases sediment and turbidity into the water column, destroys benthic organisms and contributes to wetland infilling. Our approach has been shown to be far less impacting and is an excellent example of “green technology”.

SedCon® Turbo Systems have been in operation for more than ten years. With seven different systems approved in five different states, there is a growing realization among regulatory agency staff that our technology is a superior way to deal with shoaling problems in berthing areas.
