Sea Level Rise

The City of Tampa and the Stormwater Engineering Division are actively involved in studying and addressing the future impacts of sea level rise on our stormwater system.

The Stormwater Engineering Division received a grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to develop a vulnerability analysis for critical stormwater systems located in areas susceptible to sea level rise. The analysis focuses on stormwater outfalls around the City of Tampa. Other components of the grant include determining mitigation options to address the impacts of rising sea levels on our stormwater system as well as developing a long-range strategy for incorporating sea level rise into the City of Tampa’s annual Capital Improvement Program.
