Water Resources

The major connecting link in a watershed or river basin ecosystem is the flow of water. The flow pattern is part of the water balance. How and where the water flows determines the quality of the water, the shape and stability of stream banks, the health and diversity of the vegetation, and the availability of fish and wildlife habitat.

Since incorporation (in 1994), the GREENLAND® approach to water resources projects is to ensure that the operational balance of surface water, groundwater and/or coastal water systems are maintained and that interventions are made with a perspective of the entire ecosystem.

Client Testimonials

The City of Waterloo

As a Senior Project Engineer (Water Resources) for the City of Waterloo, I would like to extend my appreciation to Greenland Consulting Engineers for providing exemplary EA planning, design, contract administration and construction inspection services for the Pond #53 Sediment Removal/Reuse and Retrofit Project.
 
This project was an important undertaking for the City which consisted of: the removal of 360m3 of sediment for reuse in a City owned boulevard area; removal of all additional sediment (approx. 3,000m3) from the SWMF permanent pool and forebay area to improve its operation, implementation of the retrofit design including improved maintenance access and proactive management of many unforeseen conditions throughout the duration of the project. This project also included significant logistical challenges with respect to the coordination of public access for area residents and businesses, and providing workable solutions to implementing the design as intended due to challenging unforseen site constraints.

As the Design Consultant, Contract Administrator and on-site Construction Inspector, Greenland always maintained open lines of communication between the City, Contractor and the affected residents, and promptly responded to all questions and issues raised by the Contractor, the City and the public. Greenland’s attention to detail throughout the entire duration of this assignment helped ensure the project was completed as required.

City of Ottawa

On behalf of the City of Ottawa, we would like to thank Greenland International Consulting Limited, and in particular, Don Moss for his exemplary efforts in his role as Model Keeper for the City of Ottawa… Greenland has achieved a high level of confidence with Senior Staff and City Council as well Conservation authority and the Ontario Ministry of Environment… The City is appreciative of the new Modelling Tool developed by Greenland which will assist the City in conducting timely and efficient development reviews. The City will now be able to test proposed infrastructure with the overall development, determine changing impacts to existing infrastructure as ponds, as well as any changes to the receiving watercourses.

Don’s knowledge, dedication and professional approach over the past five years has been a crucial factor in the success of the project under very challenging circumstances.
