EPR is working diligently with our clients, as a committed community partner in the Chesapeake Bay region, to address water quality issues and do our part to help improve the Bay. The restoration of approximately 1,750 feet of two unnamed tributaries to South River in Annapolis, MD is a great example. EPR worked with the Client to restore a degraded stream system and reduce sediment and nutrient outputs to streams entering the Bay. The project incorporated Valley/Floodplain Connection design approach that provides stream stability and enhances floodplain habitats through frequent inundation, storage, and attenuation of flood flows. To ensure the floodplain enhancement design objective was met, EPR conducted HEC-RAS 1D and 2D modeling.
