Preparing Tybee Island for Rising Seas

March 4, 2013 @ 5:30 am - 8:00 pm

Preparing Tybee Island for Rising Seas
Public · By Georgia Sea Grant
March 4 at 5:30pm until March 5 at 11:00am

SAVE THE DATE – March 4th & 5th

The City of Tybee is participating in a rising seas planning project with the University of Georgia and Georgia Sea Grant. Your input is needed to help the City make long-term decisions about how to prepare the island for things like increased flooding, more intense storm surges and saltwater intrusion.

Scientists expect Tybee Island to experience at least six inches of sea level rise over the next 50 years. The tide gauge at nearby Fort Pulaski has already measured a one-foot rise in sea level over the past 80 years. Much of Tybee Island lies just a few feet above sea level.

Get involved:
Attend a Tybee workshop
March 4th, 5:30 – 8 :00 p.m. at Tybee City Hall
March 5th, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. at Tybee City Hall

Look up Tybee Island on the NOAA Sea Level Rise Viewer (http://www.csc.noaa.gov/slr)
