Beach replenishment and preservation

Beach Replenishment and Preservation

For some communities, the recreational space of their beaches is important to the town's character and local economy. Winter storm erosion and ice can take these beaches to a point where restoring the beach is necessary for its recovery and protection of wildlife habitat and beachfront homes.

 

Lake and pond dredging

Lake Michigan dredging and pond dredging

In both natural and man-made lakes, erosion and evaporation can cause both depth and water quality issues. These obstacles can affect recreational activities as well as aquatic life. St. James Marine uses our equipment and careful planning to restore both fish habitat and water depths for recreation.

 

Marina dredging

Lake Michigan Marina Dredging

Maintaining the depth of a marina or harbor, whether private or public, is vital to the safety and protection of both commercial and pleasure vessels from damage. Harbor and marina restoration assures boaters that they can navigate freely without fear of damaging their boats. Preserving marinas and harbors is critical for the local economy of Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes and to the ecosystem.
