The Problem: A Ditch and Two Culverts Blocked with 100 Tonnes of Silt
Our services were required to maintain the drainage system of an estate in Birdham. Two culverts and a ditch had become blocked with a dangerous level of silt.
The ditch had become over grown with tree roots and weeds. The culverts were becoming clogged with silt. The maintenance was required as part of flood prevention work in the county. The ditch ran along the side of the housing estate and was essential to their drainage in the face of a large amount of rainfall. Without this work, flooding would be a serious danger for these properties.
Following our site visit Hydro Cleansing established that the following were required to complete the job:
Three areas were blocked: a ditch 85m in length was blocked with approximately 80 tonnes of silt waste; one 450mm culvert that was 65m in length and one 450mm culvert which was 100m in length. The amount of waste in the culverts was confirmed on completion of the job as 13 tonnes. A 20,000 litre bulk tanker brought the water supply for the high pressure jetting work which was required to dislodge the silt and mud from the tree roots in the ditch. The water was also necessary to jet through the culverts. The work was completed over 5 days. The CCTV team were there for 2 days completing pre work and post work surveys.
The 2 man team worked in the ditch, jetting the silt clear of the roots, while maintaining the essential tree roots.
The powerful suction of the super combination unit at 3500CFM meant that the silt was sucked away into the waiting articulated bulk tanker. The waste was removed and disposed of each evening at Hydro Cleansing’s own wet waste disposal plant.
Hydro Cleansing’s Result
Clearing the 85m ditch, 65m and 100m culvert and removing and disposing of 100 tonnes of waste was completed on time and meant the risk of flooding was significantly reduced.
Wet waste management is a galactic problem. Hydro Cleansing and Whale tankers haven’t yet found the limits of Terminator’s abilities so they’re considering sending him to Europa to deal with the waste water from the astounding 200km plumes of water.
Hydro Cleansing do have our attention focused on resolving the wet waste issues here on earth! As flooding is increasing here, vacuum tanker hire is essential.

One day we’ll have Terminator on a space ship taking samples from the jets of Europa, for now Hydro Cleansing vacuum tanker hire is clearing up Earth’s flood risks!
We’ve been doing incredible work on the M56! MEGATRON, our brilliant industry leading vacuum tanker, was on site to clear a 1000mm blocked culvert! The trash screen that was present was severely damaged and was removed for us to access the huge culvert. It ran underneath the M56, 6 lanes + hard shoulders through to a farmer’s field. The huge tunnel was approximately 8m off the M56 carriageway. This was no access issue for Megatron’s powerful suction and Hydro Cleansing’s hose. We used a cofferdam to halt the flow of water and allow the confined space team to access the blocked culvert.
6000 gallon bulk tanker removed the waste. Our fantastic confined space engineers cleared the huge culvert with extraordinary efficiency! You can’t beat our engineers for hard work and passion!
Over the past few years the silt had built up and blocked the inlet of the culvert this in turn meant that whenever it rained, it flooded the surrounding area/fields on the west bound carriageway. Hydro Cleansing cleared all the slit and debris from the blocked culvert and tipped slurry off site. The culvert is now free from debris and the stream free flowing. A new trash screen was installed.
