Campbell River Floodplain

The main stem of the Campbell River (“Little Campbell River”) spans across the Township of Langley and the City of Surrey and is located at the southern edge of both municipalities. The river discharges into Boundary Bay through a natural uncontrolled channel confluence. This creates a tidal estuary at the lower portion of the river and enables a tidal influence up the main river channel. Headwaters of the watershed are in the Township of Langley and portions of the watershed are within the U.S, the Semiahmoo First Nations Reserve No. 1, and the City of White Rock. The current watershed is not highly urbanized and is primarily characterized by rural residential and agricultural land uses. A large portion of the watershed is in the Agricultural Land Reserve.

The floodplain of the Campbell River closely follows the alignment of the main river channel and it is not extensive like the other river floodplains in Surrey. Flood control measures such as dykes have not been constructed on the Campbell River. The total area of the watershed is over 60 km2 (6,000 ha) and includes the following tributaries:

• Kerfoot Creek,
• Jacobson Creek,
• Highland Creek,
• East and West Twin Creeks,
• Sam Hill Creek,
• Kuhn Creek,
• Fergus Creek, and
• McNally Creek.
