Resilient Futures: Imperial Beach
The City of Imperial Beach is a low-lying coastal community just north of the U.S.-Mexico border that is vulnerable to flooding, particularly as sea-level continues to rise. During seasonal peak tides and energetic wave events, the City already experiences flooding that impacts residents, businesses, and infrastructure.
The goal of our ongoing collaboration with the City of Imperial Beach is to better understand what conditions cause coastal and groundwater flooding hazards, provide enhanced flood forecasting and to develop data and science to better prepare the community for sea-level rise.
