San Francisco gets serious about sea level rise 

San Francisco is about to complete a strategy for dealing with sea level rise during the next century.

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi has requested the city attorney draft legislation to establish an inter-agency task force to create a Sea Level Rise Adaptation Policy.

The policy would result from an examination of “potential future flood risks associated with a range of seal level rise over the next century, including engineered and non-engineered adaptive strategies,” according to the request.

Departments involved would include Muni, Rec and Park, Public Works, the Port and the Mayor’s Office.

Projected sea level rise has played significant role in the plans for the redevelopment of Treasure Island.
