Maintaining and improving the UK’s rich heritage of diverse waterways

At Land & Water we have over 25 years’ experience in dredging and civil engineering. Our dredging expertise keeps inland waterways and water bodies across the country navigable, functional and in the best environmental shape in order to meet the current Water Framework Directive status.

From lake dredging and pond dredging (for both privately or municipally owned sites) to river dredging and canal dredging, our specialist long reach excavators and floating equipment allow us to access hard to reach places that conventional equipment can’t. We are even able to work in tidal estuarine environments.

We have vast expertise in the permitting and licensing that is required prior to dredging activities for both the Environment Agency (EA) and Marine Management Organisation (MMO).

Additionally, our unrivalled knowledge of material classification, disposal and re-use of ‘wet’ waste materials allows us to offer our clients a one stop dredging solution to deal with the build-up of silt in almost any environment.

Finally, with Land & Water’s highly trained and competent operators and staff we can provide a reliable and quality dredging service for even the most difficult projects.
