Bay Island Drainage District Selects an IMS Model 5012 LP Versi-Dredge…Again

Posted on June 21, 2022

Bay Island Drainage District of New Boston, Illinois recently took delivery of a brand-new IMS Model 5012 LP Versi-Dredge for annual drainage canal maintenance. This is the district’s second 5012 LP. Their previous 5012 LP is approximately 25 years old and still functions well, but the district wanted to upgrade to a newer model. The material is side casted to both the port and starboard shorelines using the IMS Broadcaster spray discharge attachment. Spray dredging is a widely used environmentally friendly way to place nutrient rich materials on canal banks and wetlands to fertilize crops and other vegetation.

“The new dredge works great! The increased efficiency with the patented Pump Defender® and the whole machine in general will make it a great asset to the Bay Island Drainage District. And a big thanks to Ryan Horton for setting everything up and Rob Carufel of EDT Field Service for his expertise on running the machine and training us,” said Jake Elliott, Board Member, Bay Island Drainage District.
