Products/Services

  • CANWET® (v.4) - (CAnadian Water Evaluation Tool) In 2011, GREENLAND® completed development of "integrated" water balance (daily) and nutrient budget software to accurately assess waste loadings from non-point (diffuse) sources and predict changes associated with the implementation of Best Management Practices. This software (called CANWET® Version 4.0) can be coupled with a stream assimilative capacity model. This GIS-based model was developed originally for Ontario, Canada and can simulate runoff, sediment and nutrient loadings, given variable-size source areas (e.g. agricultural, forested and developed land); calculate septic system loads; and, allow for the inclusion of point source discharge data - including wastewater treatment plants. The program includes an intuitive and stable interface whereby users will be able to quickly create source protection models from scratch. Other features are also being created including customized output files, cross scenario plotting, importing routines and search tools. The software also has a predictive modelling component for evaluating the implementation of both agricultural and non-agricultural (including golf courses) pollution reduction strategies at the subwatershed level, in case that future pollutant loads are found to be higher than pollutant loads under existing conditions. It allows the user to create various “scenarios” in which future landscape conditions and pollutant loads (both point and non-point) can be compared against conditions that reflect the use of different pollution reduction strategies, such as Best Management Practices, restoration of wetlands, the conversion of septic systems to centralized wastewater treatment and upgrading of treatment plants from primary to secondary to tertiary. This tool includes pollutant reduction coefficients for nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment, and also has built-in cost information for an assortment of agricultural BMPs and septic system and wastewater treatment plant upgrades. The latest upgrades for "CANWET® Version 4.0" included expanding the modelling tool’s Geographic Information System (GIS) interface for public domain applications; developing web-link interfaces with climate change and nutrient trading tools; integrating new contaminant modelling capabilities for pathogens, bacteria and other pollutants; and, incorporating new Best Management Practices supported by science. This project is also key to support ongoing Canada-U.S. software collaborations about the Great Lakes that involve GREENLAND®, University of Guelph and Penn State University.

  • ISWMS® (v.1) - (Integrated Stormwater and Watershed Management System) At the turn of the new millenium, GREENLAND® identified the need for a comprehensive management tool to deal with the “multiple watershed management objectives” - particularly those related to human health/safety and watershed ecosystems. The purpose of the “Integrated Stormwater and Watershed Management System (ISWMS®)” is to provide a computer modeling and database management tool geared towards multi-objective oriented ecosystem planning. Although many modeling tools have been developed that can be used for different purposes in stormwater and watershed management, there was a lack of integrated modeling tools at the time. Functionally, ISWMS® adds specific decision functionality for flood forecasting, water balance, erosion analysis, and hydrologic and hydraulic design and analysis. The system can also be used for uncertainty analysis in this era of potential global warming and climate change impacts upon our water resources. It is intended to implement a unique combination of technical planning level or detailed analysis capabilities and database integration. In addition, ISWMS® operates on a database management engine using either internal or external data warehouses such as existing GIS systems or other databases. Remote data access technology also makes use of existing data stored at regulatory agencies. The initial software phase was completed by GREENLAND® in 2001. The software has since been tested successfully for watershed management projects in Canada. GREENLAND® was retained by the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (Ontario, Canada) to prepare a flood forecasting model for the entire Nottawasaga Valley Watershed using ISWMS® . In collaboration with other software initiatives by GREENLAND®, the ISWMS® model will not only have application in Canada but also worldwide for managing water resources.
