Drainage & Flooding

Surrey has a large amount of natural areas and watercourses across the City. These areas and watercourses are crucial for local wildlife and the drainage of stormwater to the Fraser River and Mud Bay. Learn how the City prevents and responds to flooding, soil and erosion issues, and drainage concerns around your property.

We also work with regional partners to help manage Surrey's involvement in Metro Vancouver's Liquid Waste Management Plan.
