Coastal resilience solutions for East Boston and Charlestown

Source(s):  City of Boston

This report outlines an assessment of coastal flooding risk in the East Boston and Charlestown neighbourhoods of Boston, MA, describes coastal resilience solutions, and sets out recommended actions to build flood resilience in the near- and long-term.

Climate Ready Boston’s vulnerability assessment identified East Boston and Charlestown as two of the neighborhoods most vulnerable to sea level rise and coastal flooding. Through iterative design and stakeholder engagement, potential flood protection strategies for critical locations were identified, evaluated, and developed. A set of evaluation criteria, established with input from stakeholders, guided the design process towards feasible, effective, and flexible solutions that achieve multiple benefits over long time horizons. Recommendations and roadmaps for implementing near- and long-term actions were further defined through ongoing analysis and community engagement. Costs and phasing plans in this report are estimates and recommendations only, and should not be used for detailed planning.
