Sea Level Rise Adaptation
Through a grant from the Southern Maine Regional Planning Commission, the District commissioned a study to assess the implications of floods, storm surges and sea level rise on its existing infrastructure. The results of this study were documented in a report entitled "Adaptation Options to Protect the Ogunquit Sewage Treatment Plant against Floods, Storm Surges and Sea Level Rise" (Woodard & Curran, August 2012).
The District then retained Wright-Pierce to perform a review of the 2012 report and again in 2013 to evaluate adaptation options for the Waste Water Treatment Facility (WWTF) as well as 3 vulnerable pumping stations.
