More on Preparing for Storm Surge

Senator Brownsberger was invited to submit an article for the summer issue of Insights focusing on sustainability published by the ACEC/MA (American Council of Engineering Companies). As sponsor of Bill S.344, which calls for creating a process to address catastrophic flooding in Massachusetts, Senator Brownsberger’s piece addresses the issue of sea level rise as a consequence of climate change and how state and municipal governments must plan for impacts on critical infrastructure. Read the ACEC article here.

Update to post: The front page of the Sunday, August 4 Boston Globe features the article “A rising tide of concern” discussing sea level rise and storm-related flooding, and how the City of Boston and developers are working to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
