pacific-institute_-sea-level-riseAs part of a project funded by the California Energy Commission, California Department of Transportation, and the Ocean Protection Council, the Pacific Institute has created a web-accessible map of the California coast showing areas and infrastructure vulnerable to flooding and erosion under current ocean conditions, and those at risk with a 1.4m rise in sea level.

The site allows the viewer to easily pinpoint critical community infrastructure on the map, including:

  • Health-care facilities
  • Schools
  • Police stations
  • Fire stations
  • Wastewater treatment plants
  • EPA-regulated sites

Would a tool like this be useful for your community? If so, consider exploring creating one (remember to check out the funding section if you lack the in-house expertise to do so).
