Veris Environmental owns and operates a fleet of heavy equipment such as a low ground pressure dozers and long reach excavators which are utilized in lagoon clean outs.
Neat & Clean Dredging Services
Veris dredges sediment from biosolids lagoons, silt retention ponds, manure ponds, drinking water sludge settlement ponds, and aerated lagoons. This neat and clean dredge operation minimizes odor since the solids are not exposed to the air.
Safe Extraction from Lined Lagoons
Veris can also remove solids from lined lagoons using a PTO driven pump secured to the back of a tractor and a Nuhn lagoon crawler to stir the lagoon. In this manner the liner is not damaged.
The material that has been removed is typically pumped to tankers and transported to permitted application sites for application.
Services to Minimize Costs
We can air dry solids in place or next to the lagoon to minimize transportation and disposal costs. Our operators are trained in the removal of various dried and semi solid sludges from lagoons with minimal impact to earthen lagoon liners.
Specialized Equipment utilizes Solar Energy
Using our specialized equipment to take advantage of solar energy and low relative humidity common to the western United States, we can dry liquid residuals to a soil-like consistency in a short time. We have found that it can be more cost-effective to air dry and transport only a few truckloads of material than it is to dredge and daily haul numerous tanker-loads of liquid.
Given the proper conditions, this technique can also be used to achieve Class A pathogen status and vector attraction reduction.
