State Guidance, Information and Tools

Data and Decision-Making Tools

​​Maps of areas vulnerable to sea level rise, storm surge, flooding and habitat migration corridors (e.g., wetland adaptation areas) can be used to identify vulnerable water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure, as well as communities and habitats vulnerable to climate change impacts.

​​Although at this time the state cannot provide tools or models to assist local governments in determining exactly how, when or where water, wastewater or stormwater will be impacted by climate change, the WRE should include strategies now to recognize, plan for, and respond to the possible constraints on water availability and wastewater discharge, as well as impacts to water and wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure, that could occur due to climate change. The WRE also should include strategies to recognize and respond to changes in stormwater runoff (both quantity and quality) due to climate change.

​​Over time, the state will work to increase its capacity to provide more technical guidance and modeling regarding the potential impacts from extreme events including impacts to temperature and the hydrologic regime, as well as possible changes to pollutant impacts due to climate change.
