Dam Dredging

Re-claiming the lost storage capacity of dams

Dam Dredging can restore the water capacity of dams


Amanzi Savers has a proposed solution to securing South Africa’s water supply. Besides building new dams and raising dams walls, we need to reclaim the lost water capacity of existing dams. This can be done through Dam Dredging.

Restoration dredging is a reasonable consideration. Dredging involves the use of a partially or fully submerged apparatus. The purpose of this apparatus is to gather sediment from the dam floor and dispose of it at a different location.

Let’s fix the existing water storage infrastructure

Amanzi Savers provides specialized dam dredging services on a mass scale. We can work on a scale as never experienced before in South Africa.

It makes sense to reclaim full advantage of dam infrastructure already in existence. We will use specialized dredging to restore dams to their former water storage capacity.
