Environmental Impact Assessment on a Landfill


Southwest Waste Management Authority


Siting, EIA, design, tender and construction supervision of a regional municipal landfill


Shaunavon, Saskatchewan

  • Environmental Impact Assessment

Project Highlights

Clifton compiled regional and local geology for the proposed site, assessing risks associated with the development of the landfill and proposed mitigation techniques. They evaluated it with respect to the provincial landfill development guidelines and prepared hydrogeologic characterization and estimates of the potential leachate migration. Once they had completed the Environmental Impact Assessment and submitted it to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment for approval, they prepared a design for the landfill, in conjunction with a sub consultant, and designed a groundwater monitoring system for the landfill operation. Clifton Associates supervised the construction of the design, provided QA/QC testing, and managed the public consultation process. Their additional responsibilities included evaluating tenders, producing tender documents, and recommending award.
