A permanently-installed system of intakes and conduits for removing accumulated sediment from the bottom of a watercourse includes a pattern of spaced slurry intakes of flared shape, connected by a conduit network to suction pumps. The intakes have sides sloping toward an opening at an angle at least as great as an angle at which the sediment will slide, whereby the sediment is caused to accumulate, between intermittent operations of the system, at a lowermost portion of the intake. A quantity of sediment is thereby concentrated in the flow path for remo...
A permanent dredging system for maintaining a desired bottom contour across an area of a watercourse by intermittent removal of accumulating sediment, the accumulating sediment defining an accumulation contour higher than the desired contour, the system comprising: a plurality of spaced slurry intakes mounted in a matrix pattern at least as low as said bottom depth, the intakes being spaced at least in two dimensions such that the plurality of intakes remove sediment from an area having a substantial length and width, and each of said intakes being an up...
