Project: San Mateo County Shoreline Vulnerability Assessment

Description: Completion of a sea level rise vulnerability assessment within San Mateo County for the San Francisco Bay shoreline and Paciifc Ocean coastline from Half Moon Bay north. The vulnerability assessment will lay the groundwork for the implementation of shoreline resilience across jurisdictions within San Mateo County. Funds will be expended directly by the Conservancy to further develop, refine and employ a mapping tool to inform the vulnerability assessment, and to conduct the vulnerability assessment and produce a report summarizing findings. Funds for tool development and refinement will be used to improve "Our Coast, Our Future," a suite of online maps and tools for climate change planning for the San Francisco Bay Area developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric administration, and U.S. Geological Survey, for use in San Mateo County's vulnerability assessments. Lastly, the Conservancy will retain engineering and environmental services consultants to produce the vulnerability assessment report, which will describe the impacts of various rates of sea level rise to a variety of assets along the shoreline, such as major infrastructure, communities, and natural resources.
