The navigation channel maintenance dredging of the Fraser River allows us to maximize the beneficial use of the dredged river sand. Each spring melt from the Rockies and the Coastal mountain ranges brings three to four million cubic meters of new sand supply to the navigation channel. We provide the unique service of supplying the dredged sand to users such as property developers; infrastructure projects sand vendors.
The sand is used locally for preloads, land reclamation, habitat enhancement and general fill. As this sand can be delivered directly to sites by hydraulic placement from the "FRPD 309", it reduces the need for trucking and can be placed very quickly.
