GeoPool® Dewatering System
The IMS GeoPool® system is an innovative dewatering solution that is cost effective, reusable, scalable, and easy to operate.
The system is comprised of a series of rigid steel support frames that are linked together and secured with four heavy-duty safety cables with turnbuckle connections. The interior frame structure is then lined with hi-tech filter fabric and used to filter out water from dredge slurries delivered via pipeline.
The sediments are collected in the GeoPool and the effluent water filters through the fabric via natural settling and gravity. The operator can direct the effluent to a sump by simply creating a trench 4-5 ft. (1.2-1.5 m) away from the base of the GeoPool. The effluent can then be pumped back to its original water source or treatment equipment if necessary.
The patented dump doors, like a weir, allow for rapid release of surface water of the pool to increase storage capacity. This greatly speeds up the dewatering process as a large portion of the water will not need to be filtered through the fabric during the dry down process. The patented clean out gates allow tracked earth moving equipment to move into the pool and unload it so the next fill and dewatering cycle can commence.
For larger scale projects, IMS recommends multiple pools so one pool can be filled while another pool is being cleaned out after the dry down process is complete.
Features & Benefits
The GeoPool’s robust steel construction is hot dip galvanized and made to last. The GeoPool’s clean out gates allow the pool to be cleaned out and be put immediately back into service again and again.
