Director of Water Resources Alex Vazquez shares how BCC is addressing current and future projected sea level and groundwater rise conditions.
As some of us have seen, a lot of the costal communities are experiencing tidal flooding even without any rainfall, and these conditions are actually getting worse throughout the years.
Now NOA, the Army Corp of Engineers, and the intergovernmental panel on climate change are predicting that these conditions are actually going to accelerate and is creating an existential threat to our local communities.
Here at BCC, we’ve been working with our municipal clients in implementing all available resiliency tools, to try to mitigate these conditions. And with this approach, we’ll be able to address sea level rise, and improve the quality of life of our residents for years to come.
