Holding ponds require periodic removal of accumulated sludge to restore the pond to its maximum holding capacity. Care is taken during the pumping and debris removal process to prevent damage to the liner or earthen subsurface.
MSI employs heavy duty hydraulic submersible pumps capable of moving water, sewage, sludge, industrial waste, winery byproduct and slurries at a flow rate of 1,400-2,200 gpm with a maximum solid intake of 3”. Submersible pumps can be staged as stand alone, wheeled or afloat as the situation dictates.
Pond effluent can be pumped to an adjacent holding area or directly into awaiting trucks for transport and disposal. Dewatering systems can be integrated into the procedure to aid in the disposal process.
