  aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  
   
The City of Edmonton retained Golder to solve an ongoing problem with ice accumulation across a major shared-use trail in the North Saskatchewan River Valley at Mackinnon Ravine. Groundwater seeping from the adjacent valley wall formed large scale, unsafe ice deposits under winter conditions, that resulted in trail closures and could not be managed by conventional means. Golder leveraged our water management expertise and experience working in cold regions to identify an innovative solution, incorporating Low Impact Development principles and taking advantage of nearby stormwater infrastructure to limit disturbance and enhance environmental values at the project.

Today, it is one of the most complex abandoned mine remediation projects in Canada. To meet commitments to First Nations and limit ongoing site degradation, we worked expediently to complete the EA, including working collaboratively with First Nations, intervenors and design engineers. The EA required out-of-the-box thinking to meet expectations of the affected First Nations and regulators and to maintain design flexibility while the closure design was under development.

The Garden Meadows Reservoir and Pump Station is critical drinking water infrastructure for the City of Wetaskiwin. Visibly deteriorating concrete raised concerns of untreated water ingress into the reservoir. M2 Engineering, supported by Ptarmigan Engineering and Wave Engineering, worked with the City through planning, design, and construction of the structural rehabilitation and upgrades. Various mechanical and electrical upgrades were completed in advance of the structural repairs to ensure water distribution flows could be maintained during the concrete rehabilitation work. Concealed conditions required creative problem-solving during construction. The completed repairs ensure drinking water quality will be maintained well into the future.

Award of Excellence: Show Me the Money: Financial Viability Analysis for Growth in Strathcona County 

 
  Firm: SMA Consulting Ltd.
  Client: Strathcona County
  Location: Edmonton, Alberta
     
  Other Key Players: Stantec Consulting Ltd.

Bremner will be a new kind of community in Strathcona County – a vibrant, walkable, transit-friendly area with nearby employers in the Local Employment Area (LEA), accommodating 79,000 people with densities twice the County average. The challenge was demonstrating financial viability for the $2 billion in necessary infrastructure. SMA Consulting worked with Strathcona County and Stantec to develop an advanced model, integrating asset management, Monte Carlo simulation, and genetic algorithms. Fifteen scenarios, 500 million calculations, and several Council presentations later, Bremner and the LEA were shown to be fully financially viable, a major factor in Strathcona County Council’s decision to approve development. 

Award of Merit: Geophysics to Locate Prehistoric Artifacts for Mass Transit Project 

 
  Firm: Tetra Tech Canada Inc.
  Client: Government of Alberta
  Location: Calgary, Alberta
     
  Other Key Players: Soriak Consulting & Research
  aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  
     
     
     
     
     
   
When objects such as rocks are heated to high temperatures, the magnetic orientation of the ferrous minerals within them aligns to the Earth’s magnetic field. Because the Earth’s magnetic field changes over time, the magnetic field of a prehistoric heat-altered object may be different from the current ambient geomagnetic field observed in the surrounding area.Tetra Tech has developed several new geophysical routines to detect these magnetic anomalies. In 2019 we put these routines into practice in southern Alberta. Multiple anomalies were detected. Near one of the detected irregularities, a prehistoric hearth was located by a team of archeologists.
