[ARCHIVED] Sea Level Rise report now available

Dike overtopped during a king tide tidally inundating low-lying lands on South Bay

Humboldt County has completed a Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment and you are invited to view it now.

The assessment, prepared by Aldaron Laird and Trinity Associates, with grant money the county received from the California Ocean Protection Council, identifies potential vulnerabilities and risks associated with future anticipated sea level rise and tidal inundation on Humboldt Bay. The report describes the vulnerability of shoreline, land use, transportation, utility, and coastal resource assets and will be used to develop sea level rise adaptation strategies in a region-wide collaborative effort in the coming years as part of the Humboldt Bay Area Plan update currently underway.

The Humboldt Bay Area Plan Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment is available on the county's web site. Or you can download it directly (12.8 MB file).

In addition, a Sea Level Rise 1.0 meter viewer is available for Humboldt Bay on the county’s WebGIS.
