Tide-Regulated Gates: A New Approach to Estuary Habitat Restoration

Description:Approximately 300,000 people live along the lower Fraser River on lands protected by flood infrastructure. Over the past century, the construction of dikes, pump stations, and floodboxes has enabled the development of productive agricultural lands and urban centres. This important infrastructure prevents inundation of the floodplain during high-tide and high-river flows.
