The City of Richmond’s Flood Protection Management Strategy 2019 (2019 Strategy) guides the City’s flood protection efforts and enhances its ability to prevent flooding and minimize the risk and effects of flood damage caused by climate change. The City is currently updating the 2008-2031 Strategy which recommends periodic review.

We encourage you to participate from March 27 to April 21, 2019. It's easy and convenient to review the draft Flood Protection Management Strategy 2019 and provide feedback.

Here's how you can be involved:

  • Review the information in the Document Library section on this web page, complete and submit the online feedback form below before 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 21, 2019.
  • The City will be holding 2 drop-in style open houses where City staff will be available to discuss the Flood Protection Management Strategy 2019 and answer questions. See the Important Dates section on this web page for the dates, times, and locations.

Background

The 2008-2031 Richmond Flood Protection Strategy (2008 Strategy) is a high-level guidance document for management of flood risk in the City of Richmond. Since Council's endorsement of the 2008 Strategy, Staff have implemented flood protection updates in policy, partnered with the Provincial and Federal government to secure funding, completed Dike Master Plans in anticipation of climate change induced sea level rise, and constructed drainage and dike upgrades in priority locations.

The 2008 Strategy recommends periodic review to incorporate new information on flood hazard management. It is being revisited to address current climate change science, provide long-term flood mitigation planning, and update the goals for future work in Richmond's flood protection program.

All feedback received will be considered in a final report to Council.

Thank you and let's get started.
