NJ – NY storm surge group formed

Mission Statement

The Metro NY-NJ Storm Surge Working Group on is an affiliation of professionals dedicated to the premise that the future protection of the greater Metropolitan Region against catastrophic flooding from ocean storm surges, climate change and rising sea levels can only be secured by a regional approach that transcends geographical and political boundaries. The region of consideration includes New York City, northern New Jersey, the lower Hudson River Valley and south-western Long Island. These interconnected regions are all especially vulnerable due to their low elevations above sea level, their densely developed urban infrastructure and the large populations at risk.
