1700 km of salmon habitat is blocked by at least 186 pieces of flood control infrastructure

Much of the flood control infrastructure in the Lower Mainland is aging and outdated, leaving communities at risk of flooding. It also often blocks fish from moving between rivers and oceans to streams and wetlands they seek for food, refuge, and rest.

These data are up to date as of May 31 2024. However, WWSS is continuing to work with municipalities and landowners to confirm types and locations of flood control infrastructure, including whether the infrastructure is fish friendly.
