HOW WE ARE DOING IT
We are taking a multi-pronged approach including research, field work, convening, and supporting partner groups and proponents with their needs.
FIXING FLOOD INFRASTRUCTURE FOR FISH
Watershed Watch Salmon Society's Connected Waters campaign revealed 1500 km of disconnected waterways adjacent to the Fraser River blocked by 156+ aging flood control infrastructure like pump stations, flood boxes, and dikes.
Our objective is to remove or upgrade the flood infrastructure to allow fish passage to sites that are most important to salmon and communities. We get there by coordinating meetings to better align projects, collecting data, engineering feasibility, design, or fundraising support.

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS AND COLLABORATION
We are reaching out to everyone that has an interest in reducing flood risk and helping to recover salmon. We are guided by a broad collective of First Nations, municipal staff, all levels of government, ENGOs, stewardship groups, and academics. We look to build capacity and support meeting partners where they are at. See more about us and who we are talking to.

FIELD WORK AND MONITORING
To better understand the ecological potential of tributaries and flood plains blocked behind flood infrastructure we have recruited Mike Pearson of Pearson Ecological to collect baseline conditions and effectiveness monitoring at high opportunity sites. Field work has been postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19.
We intend all field data to be fully available to those that are interested (aside from sensitive cultural data).
