OCS has confirmed that it has gained an extension to its existing contract with the Canal & River Trust - seeing the partnership exceed its 10-year milestone.
The contract, which has been extended from October 2018, sees OCS provide vegetation management, cleaning, pest control and arboricultural works.
OCS will be working across England and Wales, covering over 2,000 miles of canal networks within sites of special scientific interest (SSSI) and World Heritage sites, as well as the trust's offices and facilities.
The Canal & River Trust research shows that spending time near water helps people feel happier and healthier.
The trust states that as a result looking after the waterways provides an environmental benefit but also "promotes them to the eight million-plus people who have waterways on their doorstep, encouraging them to benefit from free, accessible and local sources of well-being".
