Current Efforts

San Mateo County is actively engaged in taking steps to prepare for sea level rise, in partnership with cities, counties, and other jurisdictions in the region. Our efforts include a multi-pronged strategy of assessing risks and identifying solutions, raising awareness about the threats of sea level rise, and collaborating and learning from others. We are currently addressing sea level rise through two main projects – a county-wide sea level rise vulnerability assessment and a detailed assessment of flooding from the San Bruno and Colma Creeks.
