Much of the flood infrastructure in the Fraser Valley that protects homes and farms from flooding, also blocks salmon from accessing waterways that once provided valuable overwintering and rearing habitat. Connected Waters aims to re-connect these blocked waterways to the Fraser River, restoring salmon habitat by upgrading to fish-friendly flood infrastructure, and undertaking restoration works like riparian plantings and removing invasive species. Restoring these waterways not only supports salmon populations, but also benefits local citizens by providing thriving natural spaces for recreation and learning, while improving flood protection for the surrounding communities and farms.
