    DURHAM, N.C. – Restoration + Recovery (R+R), a portfolio company of DFW Capital Partners and the leading national provider of stormwater preventative maintenance and corrective action, today announced that it has acquired the assets of DGC Environmental Services, Inc. (DGC), the leader in stormwater services in Florida with operations throughout the Southeastern United States.
