FOLLOW US ON:
Marin County ranks second of the nine Bay Area Counties for projected risk of impacts from sea level rise (SLR) flooding and storms, with potential losses of $8.5 billion worth of buildings and contents on the bay shoreline1
. Flooding associated with high tides and storms already impacts infrastructure and disrupts people’s lives on a recurring basis. These impacts are expected to increase in frequency and severity as sea level rise accelerates. Marin Bay Waterfront Adaptation Vulnerability Evaluation (BayWAVE)
will evaluate the extent of impacted assets, assess the sensitivity and adaptability of selected assets and work with the local cities and towns to plan implementation of adaptation strategies.
