The City of Langley retained Urban Systems in an effort to help develop succinct policies and strategy for managing its significant flood risk. We conducted a study to understand the City’s legal obligations to limit its liability as well as identifying policy and actions that are required to serve social needs. Some of the considerations of the study included; public communications, environment, emergency response, cost, and impact to property and infrastructure. We worked closely with the City’s legal counsel, City Council and municipal officials.
