[Millersville, MD August 24, 2018] Environmental construction company, Environmental Quality Resources (EQR) announces that it has been selected as the primary contractor for a $5.3 million restoration project on Furnace Creek with Anne Arundel County’s watershed restoration program. EQR will be attending the groundbreaking ceremony on August 28 along with designers RK&K and BayLand Consultants & Designers, Inc.
Of the project, EQR President Liam O’Meara says, “EQR is very excited to build this project for the county, not only because of how innovative the restoration approach is, but because as a local business EQR is grateful for the investment in our community waters. This is going to be a dramatic improvement to the watershed, and we can't wait to see the transformation happen.”
Furnace Creek in Glen Burnie, Maryland, is one of the largest projects undertaken in north county for the Tidal Patapsco watershed in the history of the county’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Program. The project will consist of converting a 20-foot wide cement storm water sluice, which is over half mile long, into a nearly five-acre broad wetland stream complex. The project will also address severe erosion carving out the streambed where the cement section ends.
