Municipal Infrastructure

We view our role on development projects as a proactive one, to ensure that each work plan is expedited and our clients' needs are perceived as priorities. This philosophy combined with a commitment to open interaction with our clients is unique and has consistently allowed GREENLAND® to achieve methodical, practical, yet often innovative approaches to problem solving, resulting in viable, cost-effective results. We offer a breadth of experience on subdivision designs (grading, servicing and storm water management); site remediation and planning; water and wastewater infrastructure; project management; public consultation; and, construction administration.

As a result of our extensive master servicing plan and environmental assessment experience with water supply, wastewater treatment and stormwater management projects, GREENLAND® developed an adaptable “Pay for Performance and Life-Cycle Cost Public-Private Partnership (PPP)” business model. The model has been used to-date for municipality and First Nation projects. This ecosystem-based approach is now being used for community infrastructure projects involving new GREENLAND® joint ventures. This PPP model can address watershed-wide cumulative impacts and climate change concerns, and including landmark environmental protection requirements from the November 2015 passing (Royal Assent) of Ontario’s Bill 66 (An Act to Protect and Restore the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence River Basin).

Our municipal infrastructure team uses proprietary decision support systems and provides these consulting services:

Drinking Water

  • Source Water Protection, Master Servicing and Environmental Assessment Plans;
  • Water Treatment Plant Studies and Design;
  • Water Pumping Station and Distribution Studies and Design; and,
  • Construction Management and On-going Operational Support.

Wastewater

  • Process Support, Evaluation, Master Servicing and Environmental Assessment Plans;
  • Wastewater Collection, Pumping Station and Wastewater Equalization Studies and Designs;
  • Wastewater Treatment Plant and Stormwater Management Facility Studies and Designs;
  • Biosolids and Landfill Leachate Management Studies and Designs; and,
  • Construction Management and On-going Operational Support.


As each project requires a tailor-made approach, GREENLAND® knows the necessary planning, engineering and consultation tasks. Our team driven solutions serve as ‘blueprints’ for sustainable development.

We have developed many defendable infrastructure designs for urban land growth areas. These solutions have also included rural and recreational aesthetics, as well as economic opportunities afforded by the new development and preservation of ecosystems for the long-term health and benefit of all residents and stakeholders.

Our project approach identifies solutions that serve individual developments and those for the wider community. This provides the basis for effective staging and implementation of provisions for financing (such as our PPP model).

Client Testimonials

Muskoka Watershed Council

The Muskoka Watershed Council’s mission is to champion watershed health in those watersheds that flow into and through the District Municipality of Muskoka. There is no conservation authority in Muskoka, instead the Council is a volunteer-based organization supported by the District of Muskoka, local consulting firms, and local Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change offices.

The Muskoka Watershed Council is currently undertaking a project to understand the potential impact of climate change in Muskoka to the year 2050. In working with our municipal partners, decision support tools such as Greenland’s new CANWET-5 model could be useful in informing our watershed management planning decisions in relation to policy development, stewardship priorities and education and communication programs.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

In March of 2013, Greenland International Consulting Ltd. completed a study for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to estimate nutrient loading in small catchment of about 177 square kilometers in the La Salle River watershed in southern Manitoba using the CANWET 4 model. Given uncertainties in some input data and model parameters, the preliminary results using the CANWET 4 model for baseline conditions of stream discharge, nutrient concentrations and loads were satisfactory in our project team as simulated values were within the range of observed values during the validation period.

This study suggests the CANWET 4 modeling approach could be used to predict changes to nutrient loads from changing land use scenarios in watersheds of this region.

Township of Adjala-Tosorontio

As Chief Administrative Officer for the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio, I would like to commend Greenland on their successful completion of the Everett Secondary Plan Master Servicing Plan and Class Environmental Assessment.
 
The level of service and timely delivery of all reports, analyses and correspondence was greatly appreciated by Township staff. Greenland’s innovative solutions and prompt responses to issues raised by the Town Staff Approvals Agencies and the affected public throughout the EA Process were very important, and we look forward to working with your team on future projects.

To that end, our team at the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio would be pleased to provide references for your firm on similar projects in future
