Wetland Compensation Program for the Thorhild Landfill

MEMS completed the Thorhild Landfill wetlands compensation program in 2010, and the wetlands continue to be monitored by MEMS today as they progress towards healthy, functioning wetland ecosystems. The work included successfully designing and constructing a 0.35-hectare semi-permanent wetland and restoring a shrubby fen impacted by birch encroachment and cattle grazing. MEMS was involved in seeding the fringes of three reclaimed borrow pits to create a wetland habitat and planting white spruce and willows along the drainages to create a wildlife habitat. 

At MEMS, we want to be part of the solution for Environmental Sustainability, and it’s been incredible to see the progress year-over-year on this project.
