Hylebos Waterway Cleanup

USA, Washington

Geotube® Dewatering Technology A Key Component In Hylebos Waterway Cleanup.

The Hylebos Waterway contains a toxic layer of sediment contaminated with PCBs, PAHs, arsenic, hexachlorobenzene, hexachloro- butadiene, and other organics and metals.

The contamination comes from a variety of industries that have been operating in the area for more than a century, including chemical manufacturing plants, scrap metal recycling, log transfer facilities, and shipbuilding. But the waterway is now becoming recognized as one of the most successful large-scale dredging cleanup operations ever attempted, thanks in part to Geotube® dewatering technology.
