NOAA CCAI project, Coastal Infrastructure Resilience in a Changing Climate

Maine Sea Grant

With funding from Sea Grant's Community Climate Adaptation Initiative (CCAI), Maine Sea Grant/UMaine Extension and UMaine researchers working with the City of Ellsworth have been co-developing adaptation planning tools for decision making, mapping complex governance structures for stormwater infrastructure, downscaling modeling of extreme storm events for including seasonal changes affecting timing for city maintenance of stormwater infrastructure, developing simple scenario interactive mapping to assist in determining priorities, educational materials developed for residents on stormwater, and completing and airing of the documentary produced by Maine Public Broadcasting Network, “Culvert Operations.”

This documentary focuses on Increasingly the intense and frequent storms that are striking Maine and New England, causing millions of dollars in damage and threatening fragile ecosystems. The documentary follows a group of UMaine researchers who are leading an effort to help Maine communities better understand and prepare for the potential local impacts of climate change.
