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.

City of Greater Sudbury

Re: Capreol Downtown Waterfront CIP and Whitson River Waterway Trail

The City of Greater Sudbury has used the services of Greenland International Consulting Ltd. for the design of the Capreol Downtown Waterfront and the design of the Whitson River Waterway Trail.

Greenland delivered both projects on budget and provided consistency in its leadership from the landscape team. This stability in project management meant that we were working with a company who was familiar with the City’s project and consultation processes.

The Capreol Downtown Waterfront improvements were constructed in 2018 in time for the community’s 100th anniversary and incorporated the community’s railway history into the design. Greenland was skilled at integrating the wishes of the community into cohesive and creative designs that provide great connections between the Community’s main street areas and natural features.

Six Nations Council

On behalf of the Environment Office of the Six Nations of the Grand River, we would like to thank Greenland International Consulting Limited for the work completed to prepare the Master Drainage and Flood Remediation Plan (MDFRP) for the McKenzie Creek watershed. This plan has now enabled our office to identify the flood prone residences throughout the watershed with the flood plain mapping that has been prepared as part of this assignement. We appreciate the role that Greenland has played in assisting our office in directing Public Works with prioritizing the remedial projects to be completed in the flood prone areas. 

We also appreciate Greenland's effort in assisting the Six Nations of the Grand River with the preparation of funding applications to secure the resources to complete these remedial works. We are convinced that this MDFRP can be used as a template for completing similar drainage and flood remediation works both locally and in other First Nations lands. 

We look forward to working with your company again in the near future on the remaining watersheds that need this important work done. 

Thank you for your ongoing assistance.

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.
