Scavenger 2000 Decontamination Vessel - Scavenger 2000 Operations Report


Courtesy of

It has been a pleasure for us to clean and help rejuvenate the City of Miami Waterways and Miami River for the past several years. Our objective is to help clean the waters of the world.

These are the results for the operation of the Scavenger2000 Decontamination Vessel performed on the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County waterways for the period of last five years.

Please see below a general report of amounts of debris collected, injected oxygen, and gallons of water disinfected through our patented Oxy-Plus system equipped Scavenger2000.

An average of 48,572 of cubic feet of trash have been swept from the waters under the jurisdiction of the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County over the last five years. By removing this surface debris, we reduce contaminants in the waterways; eliminate potential navigational collisions with normal boating traffic and prevent debris from washing up on our shorelines. The Scavenger2000 removes debris as small as bottle caps to large debris, such as 55 gallon drums, large dock pilings, wooden pallets, mattresses, large wood boards, and such. Please see attached pictures.

Mother Nature provides her own set of trash items. Some of these include coconuts; palm fronds, tree limbs, small branches, leaves and sea grass which are all collected on a regular basis. Very strong foul odors are emitted from the floatable debris where bacteria and other contaminants lodge themselves. The Scavenger2000’s ability to remove floatable debris and trash from the surface of the water allows nature’s ability to oxygenate the water.

Approximately 1-2% of our trash includes carcasses of dogs, cats, and a few small fish but mostly chickens, and bags of rotting meat from local fishing fleets.

We are also working closely with USCG when we find navigational hazards too large for collection. We have found that the Coast Guard has very little resources to help discard any navigational hazard, therefore leaving the task generally to the Scavenger2000. We also report directly to the Department of Homeland Security in order to report any suspicious activities under the territory of the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County. Please attached letter from Homeland Security Department.

The Scavenger2000 has injected an average of 635 millions of liters of oxygen into the area waters we have been working in. Attached you will find a brief description of the benefits of oxygenation. Please find attached report for Dissolved Oxygen Levels before and after performance of the Scavenger2000.
