The Lower Mainland Flood Management Strategy initiative is focused on flood risk reduction in the BC Lower Mainland. In 2020 a Lower Mainland Flood Risk Assessment was completed to support the strategy development. The risk assessment spans BC’s South Coast — from Lions Bay to White Rock — and covers the lower Fraser River — from Hope to Richmond. It evaluates the potential impacts of flood hazards in the region on people and vulnerable assets (buildings, infrastructure and other things of value) to develop a regional baseline profile of flood risk. Through this risk profile, the LMFMS partners and decision makers will gain a better understanding for future flood risk management across the region.
