Project: Collaborative Efforts to Assess Sea-level Rise Impacts and Evaluate Policy Options for the Monterey Bay Coast

Description: To further regional planning for the inevitable impacts associated with sea-level rise (SLR) and the confounding effects of SLR on fluvial processes of two river systems (Soquel Creek and Old Salinas River):

Reference Number: 0540C0300700

Implemented By: County of Monterey

Objective: Identify what critical coastal infrastructure will be compromised due to sea-level rise and estimate when those risks may occur; identify how fluvial processes will increase flooding risk to coastal communities in the face of rising seas; and define appropriate response strategies for these risks and discuss with regional partners the programmatic and policy options that can be adopted for local coastal program updates.
