BayWAVE: Sea Level Rise and Marin's Bayside
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) is evaluating the extent of impacted assets, assess the sensitivity and adaptability of selected assets and working with the local cities and towns to plan implementation of adaptation strategies.
BayWAVE is a focused vulnerability assessment that will evaluate the extent of impacted assets and work with local cities and towns to plan implementation of adaptation strategies.
An informational document that catalogs impacts with six different sea level rise scenarios across the entire bay shoreline.
Review presentations and summaries from public workshops, online surveys and community meetings where residents provided feedback on sea level rise planning.
To ensure SLR adaptation is approached consistently across Marin County, project staff recommend the use of the BayWAVE scenarios for local vulnerability assessments and adaptation plans.
