Capturing storm runoff close to the source is essential for maintaining natural hydrologic cycles and preventing pollutants from flowing downstream where they are harder to remove. EQR uses scientifically backed, state-of-the-art techniques such as GPS enabled equipment to ensure that grading, engineered soils, and native vegetation are all installed precisely to maximize natural processes that absorb and filter storm water.
EQR has constructed, repaired, and maintained thousands of stormwater best management practices (BMPs) throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. These facilities include ponds, bioretention areas, riparian buffers, gravel and constructed wetlands, grass swales, sand filters, pervious pavement and rain gardens. EQR has dedicated crews to perform stormwater facility maintenance under unit price contracts with several counties in Maryland and Virginia.
