“What is the Flood Management Strategy for the Fraser River?"

A conversation with Steve Litke, Senior Program Manager for the Fraser Basin Council

Projections to the year 2100 are for larger and more frequent floods in the region that could cause widespread disruption and trigger direct and indirect losses estimated at $20-30+ billion — four to five times the losses from the Alberta floods of 2013.

These daunting findings come from a phase 1 (2016) report of the Lower Mainland Flood Management Strategy initiative, which has the participation of over 50 governmental and non-government entities and program support from the non-profit Fraser Basin Council.

Given the critical nature of this issue, the Fraser River Discovery Centre has invited Steve Litke, Senior Program Manager for the Fraser Basin Council to talk about next steps in development of the regional Flood Management Strategy – and what is needed to better manage flood risk and increase community resilience.
