Surrey has a vast amount of natural areas and watercourses within all portions of the City. These areas and watercourses are crucial for local wildlife and the drainage of stormwater to the receiving waterbodies, the Fraser River and Mud Bay.

We also work with regional partners to help manage Surrey's involvement in Metro Vancouver's Liquid Waste Management Plan and Air Quality concerns.
