Wastewater Basin Cleaning Services

Over time, sediment buildup, debris accumulation, and sludge deposits can hinder the efficiency and compliance of wastewater basins, which can lead to costly operational disruptions, environmental fines or even safety hazards.

As experts in underwater work and dewatering, UMPS has the expertise and technology to help basins function smoothly. We can remove sludge, dredge sediment, and help you meet environmental standards with wastewater basin cleaning solutions that are customized to fit your needs.

Why the Cleaning of Wastewater Basins is Important

Imagine polluted water overflowing into rivers, damaging infrastructure, and harming ecosystems. That’s the potential reality if a wastewater basin is not cleaned regularly. These structures play a critical role in water systems, and maintaining them is a responsibility with far-reaching benefits:

  • Prevents pollution: cleaning a wastewater basin helps prevent contaminants like sediment, oil and debris from entering waterways, protecting aquatic life and marine environments.
  • Reduces flooding: a clogged wastewater basin can overflow during heavy rains, causing flooding and property damage. Cleaning of wastewater basins ensures proper drainage and prevents these issues.
  • Maintains infrastructure: proper cleaning of wastewater basins can prevent damage to basins and surrounding infrastructure due to accumulated debris and erosion. This can save money on repairs and replacements in the long run.
  • Improves efficiency: a clean water basin can function more efficiently, allowing it to handle its intended purpose of capturing and treating water or stormwater runoff.
  • Improves water quality: by removing pollutants from the water, the cleaning of water basins helps maintain the quality of water sources, making them safer for drinking, recreation, and irrigation.
