OFTEN REFERRED TO AS “GROUND ZERO” FOR SEA LEVEL RISE, SAN MATEO COUNTY IS ONE OF THE MOST VULNERABLE REGIONS OF THE BAY AREA. With funding from the Coastal Conservancy, the County of San Mateo is currently working with a broad coalition of governments across jurisdictional boundaries to spearhead an effort to address this challenge and create proactive solutions for our communities.
