LED Grow Lights Richmond

LED Grow Lights Richmond - Richmond is a beautiful coastal city situated in British Columbia province. It is considered a part of Metro Vancouver and its nearby communities are Burnaby and Vancouver to the north, Delta to the south and New Westminster to the east. The Strait of Georgia forms Richmond's western border.

The Vancouver International Airport if located within the city limits of Richmond and is found on Sea Island. The city is made up of the islands within the delta of the Fraser River. The biggest and most populous of these islands is Lulu Island. The second largest island is Sea Island, home to the Vancouver International Airport. Furthermore, there are 13 smaller islands that make up Richmond's 129.66 square kilometers of land area. Steveston's quaint fishing village is even included in the city and it is situated in Richmond's far southwest corner. The Richmond Olympic Oval was made nearby and was among the place for speed-skating events in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Since the land area of Richmond occupies islands within a river delta, the soil is rich and alluvial making it ideal for agriculture. In fact, the area was one of the very first locations within B.C. to be farmed in 19th century by people from Europe.

The geographical location of Richmond likewise brings about lots of concerns. As the land is only above sea level, the area is prone to flooding, specially in times of high tide. All of the major islands are currently bordered by a system of dykes, in order to deal with this condition. These dykes serve to protect Richmond city from expected flooding, however, they are not as huge as the New Orleans levees or those found in the Netherlands. If there ever is a large earthquake in the vicinity, there is a possibility that the dykes can break. This will cause the alluvial soil to possibly soften which will result in extensive damage.

The City of Richmond is likewise at risk of experiencing a major flood if the Fraser River has an unusually high spring freshet. There are different recreation trails and bird sanctuaries which run along the tops of many of the dykes. These flat, broad dirt roads make ideal locations for joggers, families to walk with strollers and young kids as well as the perfect location for individuals who walk their dogs. The city of Richmond supports around 1400 acres of parkland.

The city supports approximately 100,000 jobs in various fields comprising tourism, retail, airport services and aviation, fishing, light manufacturing, agriculture and government. Richmond is even a leading location within the region for high-technology businesses. These businesses include the Nintendo Corporation of Canada and MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates.
