Rising Sea Levels

Coastal Assessment Resiliency Plan (CARP)

Released this week, the Town of East Hampton has received an update on the development of coastal erosion and what the future of the topography of the eastern end of Long Island will look like given changes from sea level rise.

Consultants predict that based on current developments, “Over the next 50 years, low-lying areas will be permanently submerged under water and the town will become a series of islands if we don’t take action now. The need to begin resilience projects and policies is urgent.” Article by Michael Wright.
