The Port's Waterfront Resilience Program has conducted extensive studies, including the Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment, the ongoing USACE San Francisco Waterfront Coastal Flood Study, and others, to better understand the potential consequences of earthquakes and flooding, including sea level rise along the San Francisco waterfront. The Port has also heard feedback from the community on key Program priorities and which waterfront assets and services are most important.
To best share study results, adaptation considerations, and community feedback, the Port has divided its 7.5 miles of waterfront into 15 subareas.
The Port is excited to share these learnings through the Waterfront Resilience Story Maps, an interactive map-based tool that allows you to see how earthquake and flood may impact community spaces, disaster response sites and services to keep us safe in an emergency, utilities that keep the city running, and more.
