Pioneering Sustainability and Community Well-Being

We prioritize sustainability and improving the quality of life in our community through our operations.  One of the ways we achieve this goal is by utilizing an electric dredge, which provides economic and ecological benefits to the Des Moines community. Instead of diesel, electric dredges eliminate diesel engine air pollution and fuel spill water pollution. Additionally, electric dredges reduce noise pollution and comply with current or future Federal, State, and Local emissions, water, and noise statutes. Safety is paramount in all aspects of our operations.
