Each interference in the environment is related to the question, how a given project affects nature and human health. The SoilTain® technology is safe for the surroundings, and its impact on the environment is only local and related to the slow movement of the dredger (suction pump) along the bottom of the reservoir. An undoubted advantage is the possibility of directing drained water back to the reservoir, so there is no sudden change in the water level.
In opposite to the traditional method, where the water is completely drained from the reservoir, and then the mud is removed by excavators, which causes total destruction for the fauna and flora in this water reservoir. What’s important, the restoration of the fauna and flora of the reservoir may take up to several years Thus, in the SoilTain® technology there are only minimal and local violations of the conditions of the ecosystems functioning in a water reservoir.
According to EU legislation, polyelectrolytes used in the dewatering of bottom sediments are classified as substances that do not pose a threat to human health and the environment.
During the realization, the dose and concentration of the flocculant added to the hydrated sludge is precisely and constantly monitored
In order to minimize influence on the environment, the disposal field is adjusted as much as possible to the place designated by the investor. After the implementation has been completed, the area can be re-greened or its natural values can be restored in another way. The above-mentioned examples show that the SoilTain® dewatering tubes technology is one of the safer solutions for both the environment and people.
