Sea Level Rise Project

The Sea Level Rise Project is a study currently underway at the South Florida Regional Planning Council which aims to paint a picture of what South Florida may look like in 200 years if current predictions of global warming cause sea levels to rise significantly.


Funding for this project was provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through a grant administered by the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council (SWFRPC).  This project will use current EPA estimates of a 5-foot rise in sea level over a 200-year period to study the impacts on seven coastal counties in southeast Florida from Key West to Indian River County.
