The town’s coastal location makes it a prime target for the adverse effects of flooding. Town beaches, local roads, park areas, and tidal ponds are regularly submerged and we want to record these flooding events. These harmful effects have already become more prevalent due to the impacts of climate change, and are expected to worsen further over the coming decades. 

  • When: The primary scope of this project is from NOW - December 31, 2021. 
  • Where: Coastlines, tidal ponds and parks, and other areas where flooding is present in Greenwich, CT
  • What: See below

We are asking citizens and neighbors of the Town of Greenwich to help us monitor local flooding events by taking photographs and uploading them through the MyCoast app

Note: ALWAYS BE SAFE! Be careful when leaving your home during adverse weather conditions, and please mind local weather advisories.

Capture the Next High Tide:

We encourage you to take pictures during any flood or high tide event. Below are dates on which we expect higher than average tides.
