Planning for Resilient Ecosystems
Over the last few years the Coastal Resilience Program team has been finalizing Salt Marsh Advancement Zone Assessments for every one of the 24 municipals along Connecticut's coastline. This work stands out as the first parcel-scale assessment of future salt marsh locations for the entirety of a state's coastline in the United States. The assessments also provide locations where the built environment will be in daily conflict with tides given continued sea level rise. To view reports for each of the 24 municipalities and a comprehensive roll-up for the entire coastline of Connecticut is available by clicking here and scrolled down to the Salt Marsh Advancement Zone Assessment Reports. The New London Day ran a story on this unique and important series of reports.
