Hundreds of people have died in northern Kenya in recent months due to conflict between armed cattle herders and the wildlife conservation community.

The World Organization of Dredging Associations (WODA), during the gala dinner of its triennial international conference in Miami, proudly presented four Environmental Excellence Awards in two categories, Environmental Dredging and Dredging for Coastal Reinforcement.
The First Prize for WODA’s Environmental Excellence Award for Environmental Dredging was presented to the Project Team for Boeing's Plant 2 Sediment Remediation and Urban Waterway Restoration at the Duwamish Waterway in Seattle, Washington, USA.
The Duwamish River is probably the hardest-working river in Washington. It has long supported industry, with Boeing building thousands of World War II airplanes on its shores. It has been dredged, channelized and, yes, heavily polluted along the way — it became a Superfund site in 2001.
