Sediment Removal System/Muck Men is a diver-focused hydraulic dredging service specializing in the environmental restoration of bodies of water by the removal of organic sediment. In 2009 while in the property maintenance service business, I would receive calls from associations, pond owners and lakefront residents asking if this was a service that we could provide to remove this matter that they would refer to as “muck”.
After receiving a call from a distressed association board member about muck in their pond, I agreed to meet at the association pond and investigate what, if anything, I could do to help. What I found was a stinky, smelly matter in the pond bottom and better understood why they called it muck!
That day started a chain of events that led me to where Sediment Removal System/Muck Men is today. What I discovered is that muck is actually a naturally occurring substance called organic sediment that consists of dead or dying aquatic plants, fish, frogs, duck and goose feces, leaf, plant, and algae matter. It is found in every body of water both natural and man-made. Muck or, organic sediment, is not exclusive to a particular area but occurs globally. After much research, I found this unique service for hydraulic removal of organic sediment called Sediment Removal Solutions.
In 2010 we became a mobile service distributor of Sediment Removal Solutions and have restored ponds, lakes, canals, and channels in 23 different states and Ontario, Canada.
