Stormwater Resilience Master Plan

The last stormwater master plan was completed in 2013.

Since then, we’ve completed a Coastal Vulnerability Assessment and Strategic Adaptation and the South Davis Shores Resilience Study.

This next Stormwater Master Plan update will include the State’s recent guidance and requirements for completing a vulnerability study and to evaluate rainfall, coastal surge, and compound flooding. In general, the study will:

• Re-evaluate our flood risk using the latest data and projections for sea level rise (taking into consideration climatic patterns, changes to groundwater levels, rainfall patterns, saltwater intrusion etc.)

• Identify opportunities for improving water quality

• Identify resilient natural and built coastal features and infrastructure strategies

• Consider cost-benefit analysis for identified strategies, including an economic analysis to consider the social and environmental impacts of the various strategies

• Outreach and educational component

• Provide a “road map” for capital improvement projects to better prioritize our limited resources
