In general, stormwater is the surface runoff from rainfall and snowmelt events. Stormwater Management includes managing the quantity and quality of the water and providing safe conveyance of flows.
We continually assess and investigate the municipal watershed and stormwater drainage systems in Surrey's Drainage Study Areas to identify any needed upgrades and to determine means to mitigate or prevent future problems. We then compile the results of these assessments and investigations into various drainage plans and reports.
