Sediment Solutions On Radar?

Mazdak International, Inc., of Washington has developed new technology for removing sediment, as seen in this image. The firm’s work could benefit Lewis and Clark Lake, the Missouri River and other bodies of water.

Lewis and Clark Lake near Yankton could benefit from a national contest focused on new technology for fighting sedimentation.

In turn, the technology could apply to the Missouri River and other major bodies of water. The new approaches could lengthen the lifespans of the nation’s reservoirs.

It would be nice to see the lake deeper. Will cost and benifits be realistic? Unless they stop the problem coming out of the Niobrara River , it will be a hoples cause. Remember whe Springfeild had open water and not a slew? That was caused by the Niobrara. Fix that river first.
