NANTUCKET / Nantucket Island Project Center
Nantucket Emergency Management
Storm surge, produced by increasingly frequent severe storms, threatens the daily operations of downtown Nantucket. This project identifies and analyzes ways the Town might protect Nantucket’s downtown critical infrastructure from storm surge and offers recommendations for mitigating future adverse impacts. In collaboration with Dave Fronzuto and the Nantucket Emergency Management Agency, we assessed the risks caused by storm surge for each piece of infrastructure within the downtown area and developed a prioritized list of infrastructure to be modified. We compiled a database of relevant information for each infrastructure element in our study area, along with a GIS layer to facilitate data retrieval.
