Dredging Gold Coast

Sandman Dredging is based on the Gold Coast in Queensland and has over 30 years experience successfully maintaining canals and waterways, deepening boat moorings in marinas, private pontoons and jettys and restoring sandy beaches on canal properties and waterfront land in South East Queensland.

Sandman Dredging is fully insured including public liability. We are EPA licensed SR2199 Permit No ENRE00770208 and have been a Gold Coast City Council recommended dredging contractor for a number of years. Sandman Dredging is also contracted with the Gold Coast City Council to maintain revetment walls in canals and waterways of the Gold Coast, in it's maintenance program.

Maintaining of revetment walls on private property, even if the wall is located outside the boundary of the private property it is the responsibility of the owner under state legislation. In most cases, keeping material (sand, rocks ect) in front of the wall can keep the wall from becoming unsound.

Maintaining the depth under and around private pontoons is vital to avoid damage and costly repairs to the pontoon and vessels moored on them. Engaging our dredging assures that you can move your boat freely in and out of mooring areas without fear.

Many people think that you can dredge as much as you want, however this is not correct.. Your canal frontage has what is called a canal profile. The canal profile is the gradient to which the canal can be dredged too, anymore than this can cause issues for neighboring properties and weaken retaining walls either side of your property.
