Flood Risk Analyses for Synergistic Flood Resiliency Projects by Hydraulic Engineers from the San Francisco Public Works

Location: The Progress Solvenian Hall

Time: 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on January 28, 2017

Nicholas Birth, Bumayendra Shrestha, and Julio Maravilla from the San Francisco Public Works will give a presentation on the synergistic flood resiliency projects they had undertaken. They will also demonstrate how to use flood risk analyses to size a polder park, a below-sea-level open space designed to be isolated from the water level in the adjacent water bodies. The polder park is being discussed as a potential coastal resiliency measure to protect the Central Waterfront neighborhoods from the impacts of sea level rise and storm surges.
