To plan for future flood mitigation needs in the Central Waterfront District, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority retained NHC to conduct a sea level rise and flood risk assessment. NHC examined present day flood risks due to high tides and storm surge, and how these risks will change with future sea level rise. Using a digital elevation model to represent the topography of the study area, including the region below the elevated roadways that span the area, NHC modelled four scenarios representing a combination of sea level rise and storm surge return periods, and developed flood depth and extents maps. A hazard analysis and risk assessment used the maps to characterize the flooding, examine the likely disruption and damage to infrastructure and assets, and prepare a list of recommended mitigations with timelines related to the increasing risk of sea level rise.
