American Process Group can handle most residuals
management projects, anywhere in the United States or Canada.
From Dredging or Pumping through to Ultimate Disposal of the final
products, let APG handle it for you. With many years of
combined experience, our personnel have dealt with many different
types of slurries and situations.
American Process Group offers
the following services:
- Dredging is the removal of sediment from a water body (Lagoon,
pond, lake, river etc.) It involves the use of a floating structure
with a means for reaching down through the water and extracting the
sediment. Click Here

- Dewatering is the process of removing free water from a solid
substance, thereby separating a slurry containing suspended solids
into a liquids phase and a solids phase. Click Here

- Lagoon cleaning typically involves both dredging and dewatering,
but can incorporate other items as well. A Lagoon is typically
a man made structure that is used for containing a slurry for
treatment or holding. Other terms for describing lagoons are
basins or ponds. Click Here

Cleaning - The digesters that we are referring to
are large tanks that contain a biomass that is acted upon by
microorganisms to breakdown or "digest" the organic
components of the biomass. The most common application in this
manner is used in wastewater treatment. Digester Cleaning
involves the use of pumping and dewatering equipment. Click Here

Watercourse Management - Watercourses are any body
of water. This could be a lake, river, stream, channel etc. They can
be natural or man made. We define Watercourse Management as the
removal and treatment of sediment that over time builds up in these
bodies of water. This typically involves dredging and may
involve different dewatering methodologies.
Solids Transportation - This is the transport of
the dry solids material (usually by dewatering) to its final
disposal area. Whether it be via Truck, Rail or other, APG can
arrange and manage logistics of the sludge product so you don't have
Solids Disposal - Whenever possible, APG will
dispose of sludge in a beneficial reuse application. Some examples
are land application as a fertilizer, or the reuse of sand reclaimed
in a watercourse management project. In situations where the sludge
does not qualify for a beneficial reuse disposal, it is usually
disposed of at a landfill. APG is fully versed in
Environmental Protection Agency and Ministry of Environment
regulations so we understand what requirements there are for
Residuals Management - Residuals Management is the
Broad Scope term used to describe all of the above services.
