Genesis Water’s patented technology and equipment have revolutionized the process of dewatering dredged sediment and restoring waterways with sparkling, clear water. Our eco-friendly Rapid Dewatering System lowers the cost of large waterway projects with high-speed solids separation, including fine grained material, such as clays, silts, and organics. The system recovers and classifies assets in real time, producing sand, gravel, and soil that are ready for transport, while releasing large volumes of clear water instantly for reuse or return to waterway. Genesis also improves tailings management for the mining industry with a sustainable, continuous operation that immediately releases the hydraulic load from slurries or tailings pond clean-ups.

12/09/2013: Resacas’ restoration restores memories
It’s hard to imagine by looking at Brownsville’s resacas today, but there was a time when these former channels of the Rio Grande were the height of summer outdoor recreation.
No longer do children play on their banks, and only the most intrepid of fishermen cast into the murky waters.
Brownsville native, Leo Orlando Bueno, 61, remembers the resacas differently.
“We learned to water ski on the Fort Brown resaca,” said Bueno, a retired marine who now lives in San Antonio. “My dad would drop us off with a can a gas, and we’d ski all day until he’d come get us.”
