Over the years, reservoirs have been overwhelmed by massive silt, and collapse and inrush incidents have been frequent. However, traditional dredging cannot effectively remove silt and consider climate constraints, costing many human resources and money. Therefore, Silt Cleaner can improve the problems and be placed in the water. Besides, the silt can be combined with seeds, ordinary soil, and rice bran under the operation of the machine to become sustainable planting soil. When the collection tray is full, it will float on the water. Also, planting in the upstream mountainous to conserve water and soil.
