McEachern Dredging got its start in 1959 when Johnny McEachern opened a small landscaping and clearing operation. Within the next 3 years his son, Kenneth McEachern would join him in business and expand their operations into light grading and septic tank installation. ln 1967 a decision was made to change our business direction and start performing residential and light commercial grading work. After successfully expanding our business practices, we once again took a forward step and added lake construction to our already expanding repertoire. Johnny McEachern retired in 1981 but the business continued to grow and soon had evolved to the point where we were exclusively handling just lake construction, dredging and maintenance, with projects ranging from 500 to 36,000 cubic yards. Until his retirement in 2015, Kenneth McEachern continued to further expand our company to handle all areas of lake maintenance and development ranging from simple dredging, drain repair, siphon system installation, aquatic habitat construction, spillway structure installation and maintenance, retention pond installation and maintenance, as well as all aspects of lake and shoreline restorations.




With the help of a well-established foundation set forth by our founders Kenneth McEachern and his father and the outstanding contributions of a group of trusted contractors, Our family continues to serve the lake communities of our local area with the same pride in ourselves and our work as we have done for over 50 years.


Our company is based on fundamental Christian principles as well as pride in a family name that has been represented professionally in the dredging and construction communities for 4 generations. We pride ourselves not only on our quality of work but the way our management and operators conduct themselves in our day to day operations.

Our dredging operations are based around mechanical applications using multiple long reach excavators, off road utility vehicles and our increasing fleet of tandem axle and single axle dump trucks.  We are fully capable of operating all standard drainage systems. We pride ourselves on our abilities to access a lake site and provide our services with low impact to personal properties and their surrounding communitites. We are capable of installing all forms of Basic BMPs and supplying the licensed personal to oversee the maintenance and operations of these systems. We supply free estimates to all projects that fall within our basic services.

We look forward to you joining our family and supplying you with the best service possible during your

lake project. Choose McEachern because quality and great customer service has been our standard since

1959 and "...we are still digging".
