Over 165 km of storm sewers and 80 km of open ditches make-up the City's Storm Drainage System. All stormwater drains into either a creek, the Campbell River or Discovery Passage. Our goal is to maintain the storm pipes and ditches, allowing the storm water to flow uninterrupted to the outlets in an environmentally responsible fashion.

If you cause or witness a spill, follow the Campbell River Spill Response Protocol to reduce harm to these waterways.

The City has commissioned a number of studies to develop long range plans on the management of the City's stormwater.

Invasive species can introduce challenges to managing stormwater. For more info on safe management of invasive species, visit: campbellriver.ca/invasive-species.
