VIDEO. Sewer Authority Mid-Coast (SAM) Director and City Councilwoman, Debbie Ruddock, reports back about the California State Assembly Select Committee on Sea Level Rise and the California Economy.
The panel discussion was held in Foster City 2/7/2020. Among others, Professor Kristina Hill, from UC Berkley, presented.
Rising Ground Water Will Be a Problem Before Sea Level Rise.
This was the second in a series of 3 meetings, one in Encinitas, Foster City and another one coming in April.
The meetings are designed to generate information that will be bundled into a large portfolio of legislation designed to deal with sea level rise. Plus there will be Climate Resiliency Bonds earmarked to the tune of $5-10 billion.
Bottom line is that the $5-10 billion that has been earmarked to deal with sea level rise needs to be distributed right away to get utilities above the rising ground water.
