Sea level rise and its associated effects threaten coastal water utilities in Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection does not know which facilities are at greatest risk of flooding and cannot easily evaluate the impacts of a flood event on particular facilities. Our goal was to identify past research in this field, create a tool to evaluate hazard to coastal water facilities and measure the impact of flooding on these facilities. We have also provided the structure to expand upon these tools and make recommendations to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection for what they can do in the future to focus their mitigation efforts.
