Takes any dewatering job from start to finish, economically, efficiently and environmentally when you use a ROWD sled. Designed to hold straw bales or an 18-inch filter sock in place, ROWD sled’s design and solid steel frame provides a properly built structure for use in even the most challenging locations. Already constructed upon delivery, the ROWD sled can replace a substantial amount of conventional dewatering structures by eliminating the single-location constraints, saving significant time and money, reducing the risk of environmental compliance issues and simplifying the entire dewatering process.

  • Built with a sturdy steel frame to be used over and over, the ROWD sled eliminates the assembly of conventional dewatering structures. A conventional dewatering structure is built of straw bales and wooden posts, assembled on-site and intended to be used only at that site. Conventional dewatering structures will fail if an insufficient amount of posts are used, if weak posts are used or if the posts are not driven deep enough into the ground due to frozen terrain, laziness, rocks or mats. ROWD eliminates this by offering the ability to be assembled properly in a convenient location and then transported to the dewatering site.
  • The ROWD sled can be set in place with minimal ground disturbance. Transferring materials and assembly of a conventional dewatering structure takes equipment or multiple trips by several employees to the dewatering location. The ROWD sled is easily assembled in the yard and loaded with straw bales and a filter bag prior to use. The ROWD sled can then be moved to the dewatering location, arriving ready to use.
  • The ROWD sled allows a properly built structure to be used in a not-so-perfect situation. For a dewatering structure to function properly, it needs to be positioned level. If not leveled, the water will flow to one side and cause the dewatering structure to fail, resulting in water overflow and low pumping volumes. With the sturdy frame and solid steel construction, ROWD sleds can easily be leveled on uneven ground, used on timber mats where conventional structures can’t be built and even used on frozen ground where conventional structure stakes can’t be driven.
  • The ROWD sled is designed for crews to easily move the structure for use over and over. Once dewatering is complete, the ROWD sled is easily taken to a new location for reuse or disassembly. This prevents structures from sitting for days, weeks or even months after dewatering is complete. This also cuts down on the number of conventional structures built on a project.
  • ROWD sled is easily used both on or off the right-of-way. The ROWD sleds’ mobility significantly reduces ground disturbance and other environmental impacts to the land used for dewatering.
  • The ROWD sled is designed to be used multiple times, in numerous locations. Typically, conventional dewatering structures are built for single-site use, often dewatering just one location. One crew may dewater multiple locations in a day requiring numerous conventional dewatering structures. By replacing conventional structures with a ROWD sled, crews can move from one location to the next using the same structure, therefore reducing manpower, material and disposal cost.
