Water Resources

The major connecting link in a watershed or 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.

Moriyama & Teshima Architects

On behalf of Moriyama & Teshima Architects, I would like to thank you for your high level of competence and involvement expressed in the design process on the Keele Street Public School Addition and Renovation project… I felt you were integral and instrumental in coming in and taking the project from an ill-fated design…to design completion, tender and the approvals stage. You showed high levels of knowledge and understanding in your field, and your thoroughness and professionalism have led to the success of this project to date. I am thoroughly satisfied in the way you designed the services system, dealt with authorities having jurisdiction, and for your recommendations regarding budgetary concerns.

I would not hesitate in recommending you as a civil engineering consultant on any further project I am involved with.

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.
