ARC Employees replenish bio-unit
Defense Logistics Agency Installation Operations at Richmond’s contracted Defense Logistics Agency Installation Operations Richmond’s contracted employees from the Greater Richmond ARC replenish an existing bio-unit adjacent to one of the parking lots on Defense Supply Center Richmond, Virginia. A bio-unit is a specifically designed natural filtration system which captures storm water run-off from the parking lot. The native plants and mulch absorb the water and any pollutants before they can enter the storm sewer and the near-by stream. Bio-units are one of the many environmental improvements built as a result of the center’s Environmental Management System. (2016 File Photo by Jackie Roberts)
