Del Mar Coastal Study Reveals Projected Impacts

In coordination with the City’s Sea-Level Rise Stakeholder-Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) and Environmental Science Associates (ESA), the City of Del Mar has completed a Draft Coastal Hazards, Vulnerability and Risk Assessment Study.

Funding for the draft Study was provided through a grant from the California Ocean Protection Council with matching funds provided by the City Council.

Since July 2015, STAC has held nine public meetings including a community forum to discuss sea-level rise with residents and key stakeholders.

Upcoming STAC meetings are scheduled for June 9 and July 21 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM to consider recommendations to the City Council as to how the City can adapt to future changes.

The draft Study uses storm-modeling to answer important questions about the scale and shape of what future flood and erosion scenarios could look like in 2030, 2050, 2070 and 2100. It also exposes Del Mar’s vulnerability to sea-level rise, beach and bluff erosion and river flooding.
