Richmond: The City of Richmond and its funding partners have spent $45 million since 2008 on flood protection measurements and an additional $50 million investment over the next five years is being recommended.

“Richmond has one of the most comprehensive and effective networks of diking and drainage networks in Canada,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “We are constantly investing in improvements to make our flood protection measures even better and to address long-term concerns from global warming and sea level rise. This ensures our City is well protected from any immediate or potential flooding threats.”
