Lowlands & Floodplains

Driving on a flooded road

Surrey’s lower elevation areas are influenced by ocean and river tides. In fact, Surrey's coastal floodplain area alone spans 20% of Surrey’s land.

Lowlands and floodplains in Surrey are protected through river and shoreline dykes. Each area has unique issues and specific land use and protection strategies. Read the Coastal Adaptation Strategy for the latest information about coastal flooding strategies in Surrey.
