B.C. to improve flood preparation in Township of Langley

LANGLEY, B.C. – The Government of British Columbia is working to improve pump capacity on floodplains and irrigation systems in the Township of Langley, B.C.

The township is working in partnership with Kwantlen First Nation and the Rivershed Society of B.C. on a multi-phase project that includes upgrading water infrastructure and adding pumping capacity to manage flooding in the area in order to improve water flow and storage and increase flood resiliency for the community.

B.C. is putting $5 million towards the project as part of a $20 million, multi-year Fraser Valley Flood Mitigation Program which will also provide $10 million toward the Hatzic Flood Mitigation and Watershed Master Plan and the Athey Road Bank Stabilization project.

Work includes repairing dike banks, replacing culverts and improving some of the ditch networks and installing additional pumping capacity at the Salmon River Pump Station, a release said. Existing pumps at Salmon River will also be replaced with fish-friendly pumps that can run throughout the year.

A comprehensive study on the Salmon River will be conducted in consultation with partners in the community, such as First Nations, farmers and other stakeholders, the release said.

The Glen Valley and Salmon River Flood Mitigation project is expected to be complete by December 2025.
