Awards and Nominations

Clearflow has been fortunate enough in the last ten years to have been awarded many prestigious awards. This would not have been possible if not for the extraordinary vision and dedication by Jerry Hanna and the team at Clearflow.

“Clearflow Group and Greenland Engineering lead the way for Stormwater Management! “
This joint venture project between Clearflow Group of Alberta, GREENLAND® Engineering from Ontario and the City of Waterloo is the first of its kind and one that Clearflow and Greenland are looking to take nationally.

Last week, we received the retrofit construction approval for the City’s Laurelwood Pond #53 facility. Since construction (in 2003), the stormwater pond has accumulated significant sediment from upstream sources. The approved design was derived using an in-house “Bio-clear and Low Maintenance Approach” and which had regard for cumulative watershed effects (and climate change concerns) using CANWET™.

The retrofit design utilizes Clearflow Group’s proprietary water treatment product Water Lynx™ to reduce sediment load, phosphorus and nutrient loading. In addition, Clearflow Group’s Soil Lynx™ product will be used for erosion control. Clearflow’s Treated Geo-Jute and Treated Floc Curtains will be used for polishing ultra fine sediments out of the Waterloo and the Lynx™ sediment binding products by the Clearflow Group will be used to bind the slurry material removed from the pond.

In addition to significant cost savings from a life cycle perspective, the Pond #53 retrofit will improve downstream water quality within the Grand River Basin and ultimate discharge to Lake Erie. When implemented on a larger scale (and by any municipality), the financial and environmental benefits from using the same design process would be impressive.
If you are attending the TRIECA conference this month in Brampton, the City of Waterloo and GREENLAND® staff will be presenting the (approved!) Pond #53 project.”
