Dredging & Erosion Control

Cumberland River Docks and Metal Works offers dredging for all of your shallow water needs. The Army Corp of Engineers can fluctuate water levels significantly. Dredging is a way to improve your ability to use boat during these fluctuations, but it is not a guarantee the water will not be lowered to an inoperable level. Our dredging process is a by water process on floating barges. We will not compromise your property. Once we complete the work your yard will appear the same as it did when we began. Dredging under your boat slip or canals will increase the ability to use your boat and boat lifts. Dredging is a four-part process that includes loosening the material and bringing to surface, placing material in container, transportation to an approved dump site and disposal. We abide by all Tennessee Water Quality Control Act of 1977 and Aquatic Resource Alteration Permit or 401 Water Quality requirements.

Shoreline stabilization (rip rap) is used to stabilize slopes to prevent erosion and provide support for the shoreline. It is a requirement for proper stabilization to place down a geotextile mesh fabric or small filter rock to prevent the soil from moving through the rip rap. We will also help shape the shoreline for the maximum protection.

“Cumberland River managed my first dock install. They were beyond professional, timely, and accurate. They communicated every step of the process so I had a full understanding. I would recommend Cumberland River for any job!”
