Woods Hole Group Offers Plans to Cope With Sea Level Rise In Falmouth

Oct 31, 2019

Building earthen berms in certain areas of Falmouth to protect vulnerable town infrastructure from flooding—and also creating a new harbor in Woods Hole—were among the ideas a Woods Hole Group scientist raised at a public presentation at the Falmouth Public Library Tuesday, October 29.

The Falmouth-based environmental consulting organization has worked with a town steering committee for the past year on a climate change vulnerability assessment and an adaptation planning project.
