Does Your Industrial Lagoon Need Attention?

Does your industrial lagoon or wastewater pond need cleaning, dredging or dewatering? If so, you’re not alone. Whether you operate a large refinery or petrochemical facility or a smaller industrial or manufacturing plant, determining how best to store and handle liquid waste streams remains an often-neglected area within many facilities. But the benefits of keeping ponds and lagoons clean and working efficiently are significant, both from an operational and regulatory standpoint. Sludge and solids build up over time, reducing the storage and treatment capacity of your lagoon, which can drag down operations and increase the risk of environmental issues in the event liners leak or other safety issues occur. Even when businesses know the risks, this crucial maintenance task can be left untended due to manpower and budgetary constraints. 

We can provide economical solutions to your team designed to keep holding ponds and lagoons clean and operating safely at peak efficiency. We offer a variety of mobile dewatering and sludge removal solutions with our state-of-the-art equipment and seasoned staff. Whether it’s a one-time cleanout, managing daily waste production or rethinking how your facility handles wastewater residuals altogether, our team can help.


Cleanouts Can Produce Surprising Benefits

As the Gulf Coast’s premier provider of waste services to commercial and industrial facilities, Sprint’s wastewater residuals unit is a natural fit with our basket of industrial services. This segment has grown significantly as a result of the  heightened demand among petrochemical and chemical facilities and other large manufacturers in the region.

Over time, industrial lagoons and holding ponds build up solids and sludge that reduce operational effectiveness and expose facilities to more costly environmental and mechanical problems.  Often, rethinking the entire process can produce more cost-effective ways to manage this material.

Sprint Waste Services General Manager Jonathan Hill, who leads our residuals group and team of experts in dewatering and residuals management, says operators large and small can benefit from taking a fresh look at this important part of the operation. “Paying closer attention to wastewater residuals within an industrial plant can produce surprising benefits for many facilities, with a relatively low cost,” says Hill. “Sites can save significant expenses by transporting higher solids content, reducing the number of loads required as well as the amount of disposed waste. We’ve surprised several customers with new and safer ways of handling waste streams.”
