A meeting to discuss the effects of sea level rise on the South Coast, hosted by San Mateo County’s Office of Sustainability, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. tonight, July 14.

The discussion will center on a sea level rise vulnerability assessment that the county conducted on the Coastside and Bayside, and is currently expanding to the South Coast with the help of the San Mateo Resource Conservation District. The assessment would map the sea level rise risk and potential effects, including flooding and erosion, to develop a cost-benefit analysis of inaction to planning for sea level rise.

More information about the meeting and study is available at www.seachangesmc.org.
