RCAP Database | Water Supply, Management and Infrastructure: WS-3

Utilize existing and refined inundation maps and stormwater management models to identify areas and infrastructure at increased risk of flooding and tidal inundation with increases in sea level, to be used as a basis for identifying and prioritizing adaptation needs and strategies.

Planning Horizon: 
Short (0-5 years)
Potential Partners: 
NOAA, USGS, Academic Institutions
Potential Funding Sources: 
NOAA, USGS
Estimated Resources Required: 
Several tools already under development, new tools and tool refinements could range from $100,000 to more than $1 million
Milestone Progress: 
Creation of models, identification and prioritization of adaptation needs, creation and adoption of adaptation plan and funding strategy, identification of additional needs (e.g., monitoring stations, data collection, infrastructure improvements and priorities)
