Ebbwater has been instrumental in supporting the CVRD as we navigate the complexity of managing coastal flooding throughout the region. They have led an effective and comprehensive stakeholder engagement process to build a shared understanding and approach to mitigate risk and adapt to impacts related to climate change. Their expertise, organization and innovative approach has been key to the success of our project and the capacity building process.

In 2021, Ebbwater Consulting completed floodplain mapping and risk assessment work for the SLRD in Electoral Area D. Ebbwater delivered robust and innovative, value-added results utilising a specialist, multi-disciplinary team to address the complex mix of factors influencing flood risk in the project area. They were a pleasure to work with and provided exceptional value.
