US northeast waterways welcome new dredger

US-based Freshwater Dredging and Wetlands Restoration has taken delivery of a compact multi-function dredger, which will clean and maintain several private lakes on various properties owned by custom rifle manufacturer Griffin and Howe, and eventually move on to local environmental projects in the US northeast.

Built by Ellicott Dredge Technologies (EDT), the dredger will initially clean out and maintain several lakes in the states of New York and New Jersey. Freshwater Dredging and Wetlands Restoration selected the vessel due to the combination of rocky soils and branches in their lakes, which is commonplace in the rugged northeast wilderness.
