Three Springs at Shiloh Wetland Mitigation
SCI turned a compensatory mitigation requirement for a multi-use development into an amenity for the Village of Shiloh. The approximate 6- acre constructed wetland and stream channel design and enhancement were recognized by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for contributions to not only the environment, but also benefits to the community in terms of recreation and education. SCI’s unique design contributed to a multitude of primary and secondary benefits to the surrounding area. The project is an amenity to the community and highlights the importance of wetland integration within site development and city planning.

Metro East Levee Improvement Project
Madison County, Illinois
Unique combination of clients and needs resulted in the creation of a 52.4-acre wetland in the Mississippi River watershed. The solution to a need for mitigation by the levee district was also a solution to more stormwater management. The project used all available materials to support sustainable practices by Republic Services, and benefitted the environment by creating wetland habitat.

Mark Twain Birthplace State Historic Site
SCI was challenged with the task of providing services to preserve the birthplace and the irreplaceable artifacts for the Mark Twain site before the 175th anniversary celebration of his birth. The project team developed an innovative solution that included a multi-stage cleaning protocol and a unique scaffolding system to access the ceiling and otherwise inaccessible areas. By using these less traditional, non-destructive methods, each member of the project team was able to reach its goal and the historic artifacts, including the Mark Twain cabin, were restored without being compromised.
