This EBC Climate Change webinar will focus on the existential threat of coastal flooding to the fifteen cities and towns that flood throughout Boston Harbor and the effectiveness of a regional coastal resiliency layered defense system.

Municipal officials and their coastal resilience consulting engineers will discuss their local Boston Harbor coastal resilience infrastructure plans and how these plans would be impacted through coordination with the development of a regional sea gate system that would protect the entire Boston Harbor coastline from storm surge devastation.

A robust discussion with the audience will conclude this webinar.
