As sea levels rise and chronic flooding becomes the new normal, even master dike builders such as the Dutch are moving to more flexible, resilient solutions. The concept of “Living with Water” is the strategy of allowing defined areas to flood or contain water in order to prevent damage to other areas.
Julie Wormser, Executive Director of The Boston Harbor Association, will give a presentation on what Boston can expect from rising sea levels and what we can do short term and long term to decrease our risk of flood damage while maintaining our access to the ocean.
HOSTED BY THE FRIENDS OF THE NORTH END BRANCH LIBRARY
Free and open to the public.
6:30 pm at the North End Branch Library, 25 Parmenter Street
