One of the quickest ways to recognize the health and vitality of a park or nature center is to look to the water. The ponds, lakes, and streams of a particular region demonstrate the fish population and other water creatures. Obviously, the absence of a fish or other animal life is an indicator of a problem, and that was precisely the issue at Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation in Elgin, Illinois just a few short months ago. Fortunately, they knew just who to call, and when Organic Sediment Removal Systems arrived on the scene, they were ready to help right away. A spring fed the connection of 10 small ponds, which had been plagued by sediment. Ultimately, the ponds were uninhabitable by the trout, requiring OSR to remove 2 feet of sediment, and effectively increase the ponds' water capacity by a whopping 200%.
