This workshop and resultant report used floodgates as a way to investigate the various life stages of flood infrastructure, from planning and design, to permitting, and implementation, to maintenance and monitoring. We asked participants to discuss the biggest challenges for flood infrastructure in their communities, and ideas for how to improve the process. You can find the workshop recording here, featuring a presentation from City of Surrey's Coastal Adaptation Engineer, Matt Osler.
