Dewatering Geotextile Tubes
The Geotextile Tube is designed for any location with large sediment or water flows required. Often designed as a large dewatering bag, these tubes allow for sediment or sludge filled water to be quickly pumped into your tube. As the water filters through the bag, sludge, sediment and other unwanted materials remain contained within the storage area. This reliable system has helped to remove water from sludge and filter out sediment during large dredging projects.
Standard Dewatering Tubes are made in sizes as large as 200 feet long and circumferences as large as 90 feet. Unlike dewatering bags, filter tubes are often constructed from a woven fabric material. This helps to provide additional strength during dewatering in your location. Due to their large and reliable size, these tubes have often been used for power plants, WWTP and large dredging sites to dewater and retain materials.

Having a smaller dewatering job? In addition to the large tubes, we also offer several small Dewatering Bags to help filter out sediment and materials. These bags typically include sizes of 6x6, 10x15, 20x15 and more.
In order to determine the right option for your location, we typically urge customer to take several factors into consideration including the following:
- Type of solids you are filtering out
- Areas available for placement of the tubes
- Clear understanding of where the filtered water will flow to
- How many tubes are required for your level of contents.
