About the project: Greenwich Coastal Resiliency Assessment and Plan

Greenwich engaged with the Princeton Hydro Team to assist in evaluating the Town’s public properties and infrastructure vulnerability from Coastal Flooding and Sea Level Rise scenarios. The project scope also included identifying threats to coastal areas serviced by on-site sewage disposal systems. The Team provided prioritized and recommended strategies to protect or upgrade town assets to increase resilience to coastal storm damage, flooding, and sea level rise; and engaged the Town of Greenwich on coastal resilience and ecological health. The project had an additional focus on the effects of tidal migration on the four Town owned tidal pond complexes: Binney Park Pond, Bruce Park Pond, Eagle pond, and Mill Pond. The outcome of the effort was the development of a Coastal Resiliency Assessment and Plan and Tidal Ponds Evaluation Report (both still in draft form).

The two public meeting sessions will focus on the findings of the evaluations and provide an opportunity for residents to gain a greater understanding of the challenges that the Town is confronting with Coastal Flooding and Sea Level Rise.
