Red Wing Sand and Gravel


Silt / Dead Sand

The sandy washings from sand and gravel that is processed through the plant. The wash water goes into a large settling pond. The heaviest, coarsest particles settle out first; this is the Dead Sand or Silt portion. The finer, lighter particles float farther away from the pipe before settling out. These very fine particular are our Clay. Ball fields might use silt which is sandier than clay.
