Protection and Conservation


Delta’s environment plays an important role in both regional and international ecosystems. It is becoming increasingly important to protect and conserve Delta's remaining natural assets.

Water Conservation

It is important to use water appropriately and efficiently. Learn about Delta's water conservation initiatives to help you conserve water.

Streams, River & Ocean

We all enjoy living in close proximity to streams, the Fraser River and the ocean. These waters provide fun recreational activity, educational opportunity, natural habitat for wildlife and more. It is our responsibility to protect and conserve our waters, so future generations can enjoy them too.

Protecting Forest & Natural Areas

Due to development pressures and the associated loss and fragmentation of natural areas throughout the region, it is important to preserve Delta's remaining natural assets like forests, ravines and natural areas.

Air Quality

Protecting the quality of our air is an important part of Delta's efforts to mitigate climate change.

Pesticide Bylaw

Learn about Delta's Pesticide Use Control Bylaw No. 6788, 2009, and find out how to dispose of pesticides safely to prevent pollution.

Burns Bog

Delta joined with the Province of BC, the Government of Canada and Metro Vancouver to preserve the ecological integrity of this important area. On March 24, 2004, a binding purchase agreement was reached to protect 2,042 hectares of Burns Bog as an Ecological Conservancy Area.
