In 2012, at a very prestigious convention center in St. Charles, Illinois, a team of pond cleaning professionals made a huge impact. The Q Center is a popular spot, and features an entrance walkway wrapped in waterfalls that flow under the walkway and cascade down into a series of streams and ponds. These waterways wind around the center, then separate the outside courtyard before spilling into a three acre pristine pond. It is this pond and series of waterways that deteriorated over time – to the point where the Q Center was unable to restore their beauty without damaging the surrounding landscape. Organic Sediment Removal Systems was called in, and their system managed to restore the sensitive areas without damaging the existing landscape or environment. Four years later, the Q Center continues to benefit from the comprehensive overhaul that was performed, effectively resurrecting the former beauty of the area.

Animal Petitions, a top online destination for those concerned about wildlife welfare and conservation, issued a call to action to save a population of orca whales off the coast of Washington. With dams on the Lower Snake River cutting off the orcas' natural food supply of chinook salmon, the killer whales are forced to subsist on their own stocks of blubber throughout much of the year. Burning blubber leaves the orcas weak and more susceptible to illnesses, endangering the lives of pod members young and old. The new Animal Petitions drive centers around a letter at AnimalPetitions.org encouraging President Barack Obama to take executive action to remove four dams on the Lower Snake River, a move that would restore the orcas' access to chinook salmon, improving their reliable food supply by 70% at a single stroke.
