ERQ in the news!
As seen in the Cumberland Times-News, EQR is working with state and local agencies to restore the Potomac River to its natural glory and improve fish and wildlife in the area.



EQR has instituted an apprenticeship program.  The program is for a Construction Craft Laborer and involves field training and study in a wide range of topics applicable to our work.  Please see our Employment page for details.



DMP Site Reclamation in Progress.  Anne Arundel County, Maryland, selected EQR to perform reclamation work at the Parish/Idlewilde Dredge Material Placement site.  The work entails the excavation, pH adjustment and disposal of more than 80,000 cubic yards of dredge material as well as repair and extension of a synthetic dike liner.  To meet the client's desired completion date, we are coordinating the work of multiple crews and a large trucking operation.  The project will allow the County to increase its dredge material storage capacity and buffer pH of the dredge material.



EQR wins NC project.  The City of Raleigh has awarded to us the Big Branch Channel Stabilization project.  Work commenced this spring.  The project will improve water quality and help moderate flow velocity during storm events.  Banks will be stabilized using coir fabric, native plants and wrapped soil lifts.  Rock Vanes and J-Hooks will be used in-stream to direct water flow.  We look forward to completing this work for the City.
