Transcript 1 Dredging and Filling * To those who have low lands that can be improved by filling in from adjacent waterways, or channels or harbors that require to be deepened, we would particularly call attention to our facilities for executing work of such a character. Our thorough knowledge of the best methods of doing work of this description is based on an experience gained in handling almost every kind of material, from soft mud, hard clays and sand to soft sand-rock in place, under a great variety of conditions, and covers work done by hydraulic method to the amount of 12,000,000 to 13,000,000 cubic yards. This work has been done at various places, from Massachusetts to Texas on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, and from Washington to California on the Pacific Coast, as well as at Guatemala, Central America, and the Hawaiian Islands. The plant suitable for this work which we now own, under favorable conditions has a capacity sufficient to handle over a million cubic yards per month. Our facilities for doing such work are so far perfected that we can execute it at prices heretofore deemed impossible. We invite correspondence with those who have filling or dredging work in contemplation. 55
