Abstract
When properly conducted, sediment removal is an effective lake management technique. This paper describes: (1) the purpose of sediment removal, (2) environmental concerns, (3) depth of sediment removal, (4) sediment removal techniques, (5) suitable lake conditions, (6) exemplary case histories, and (7) costs. The reasons for dredging lakes are to deepen, limit nutrient recycling, reduce macrophytes, and to remove toxic substances.
