Need a Totally
Portable Solution For Off-Site Decontamination?
We all know the
Clean Water Act of 1972 prohibits washing on the ground.
Here's a quick solution. The Hydromat is
a fully licensed and patented technology that allows you to
pull watercraft on top, then wash, collect and contain all wastewater.
It sets up in minutes, making you ready to wash at any remote
We Have Many Models
Of Decontamination Trailers
We've designed and built the decontamination trailer
just right for you! Decontamination of
equipment is our specialty, with over 500 operating in the
Middle East. We've used this extensive experience to build
3 Hydroblaster trailer models just for invasive species decontamination.
One model even carries a Hydromat instant containment and
wastewater collection and transport system.

Marinas - the EPA and THE Clean
With the national drought
and water pollution problems abounding, the EPA is determined
to control wastewater discharge where it can. And it has
determined that it can at marinas. The Clean Water
Act says: "No water other than that from rain can be discharged
to the ground and make its way to a waterway" (40CFR-122.2). It's simple--no more washing in the lakes or on
If you're worried about the methods used to clean boats
at your marina, you need to take a look at the Hydropad portable
mussels inside the out drive and engine. The smaller mussels are taken into the engine
where they grow to full size and plug the waterways.
You then overheat and burn up your engine.
Zebra & Quagga
January 10, 2007 the National Park Service announced that
zebra mussels were found for the first time in Lake Mead near
Las Vegas, Nevada. The quagga mussel,
a member of the zebra mussel family, was discovered by maintenance
personnel servicing a marina. Quagga were attached to cables
anchoring the marina's docks. Further inspection of the lake
found more extensive contamination.
Zebra mussels are an Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) that can
propagate very quickly and can cause a significant impact
on recreation and industrial activity. Eradication of an established
mussel population is deemed impossible.
Waterways in the eastern
half of the US have dealt with infestation for years with
little success in controlling the onslaught of zebra mussels.
The logical approach dictates that decontamination of each
and every boat, trailer and tow vehicle that arrives and departs
is critical to prevent further contamination spread. This
approach is also an essential component of control measures
focus at Lake Mead must now include both prevention and management
of the problem.
Management entities responsible for other waterways in the
western half of the US have been notified of Lake Mead's
situation and should plan to expedite installation of preventative
measures before they too have the same misfortune.
Inc. is very familiar with the decontamination application
requirements and has proven systems available to incorporate
prevention measures at any waterway.
Engineering's Hydrosite™ decontamination systems are the answer! We encourage management of waterways
throughout the country to contact us for assistance.
Park Service Announces Watercraft Decontamination Stations
at Lake Powell.
It's easier than you
think to meet the "Clean Water Act." Hydropads are the perfect
instant wash and collection site for portable washing. Applications
like boat washing and bilge draining are done on the Hydropad,
collecting all wastewater for proper treatment and disposal.
Set Hydropads in place anywhere in the marina, where drive-on, drive-off access is possible. Add a Hydrokleen filtration
system and you can drain the bilge, wash,
collect and reuse the water or discharge to a sanitary sewer.
Wash Pad System
On, Wash and Then Drive Straight Off
The Hydropad system
can be set on the ground just about anywhere the ground is
firm enough. Concrete or asphalt is not required. All Hydropads
are 8’ long and come 8', 10', 12', 14', 16', or 20' wide.
They can be connected together side-to-side and end-to-end,
forming any size washpad required. Three 8' x 14' Hydropads
provide a 14' x 24' long system.
By making simple hose
connections from the Hydropads to the Hydrokleen Wastewater
Treatment/Recycling system, they can be placed almost anywhere.
Weight is not
a problem; Hydropads can handle up to 15,000 lbs per square
It's An Airplane Until It Lands In Water
An then it becomes a watercraft
Sea Planes, Amphibious Float Planes and those with Strait Floats can transport Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) from one water body to another. Items which protrude from the floats, rudders, wheels, etc can gather and hold AIS, transporting it to the next landing site. These pontoons also have compartments which maintain the buoyancy of the craft, water seeps in requiring frequent pump out of the compartments. If not done prior to takeoff, this water can carry AIS to the next location where water is evacuated.

Marina Oil Water
The HE/S1 will remove
free oils from the collected water down to less than 50 ppm.
With the Hydrosorb option it takes hydrocarbons even lower,
to under 10 ppm.
Skid-mounted and totally
portable is the key. Everything is above ground and installs
in hours, not days or weeks.
Big Boat impounded for tiny mussels
Jun. 12th, 2012, by Sun Advocate, Price Utah
Utah wildlife officials impounded a 53-foot sailboat last week and had to comb over every square inch of it to find and exterminate an infestation of tiny mussels.
Use the money collected
as you charge boat owners for use of the facility, and the
entire washing, collection and filtration system pays for
itself. With our marina finance plan your new system is free!
36 Month Zero Interest Lease"
That's right, we will
lease it to you for 3 years with no interest; you simply pre-pay
a 10% residual (buy out) and make 36 payments totaling the
equipment price and you own it.
The decontamination system by Hydro Engineering Inc. is totally portable and can be set up and operational in one day. It includes a patented modular wash rack that collects the waste water and oil. The waste water and oil is pumped to filtering and recycling equipment that separates the water from the oil and then supplies the water back to high pressure washers that reuse the recycled water.
The Hydrosite is packaged as an instantly deployable wash rack. It arrives as a fully assembled package requiring just hours to become fully operational. This Hydrosite decontamination system can be used anywhere that level ground, a water source and electric power from either the grid or generator can be found.
