Do the Sea Walls still Protect Us?

Do the Sea Walls still Protect Us?

A program on rising tides and the City’s aging Sea Walls!

The seawalls in our City keep the high tides, ocean swells, floodwaters and wind‐driven storm surges from our homes and businesses on the Balboa Peninsula, Mariner’s Mile, Bayside Drive, Balboa Village and especially Balboa Island. Rising sea levels, an El Nino winter and our aging sea walls may create an imperfect storm and flooding this winter! Please join our guests from the City’s Public Works Department to learn about our aging Seawalls and the latest on rising ocean levels. Questions we hope to answer include:

  1. How will we protect our community from flooding this winter?
  2. How high must we build sea walls to keep the ocean and bay waters out?
  3. What are the construction options?
  4. Can we repair or replace the sea walls in time to protect us this winter?
  5. What will it cost? And who will pay for it?

You don’t want to miss this program! Come with your questions.
