Tool Consultation Leads to a Smart Community Decision in Rhode Island
The STORMTOOLS risk-mapping tool convinced Rhode Island’s Town of Narragansett to move forward on a flood-proofing barrier that will protect a wastewater treatment facility serving 7,300 residents. The flood-proofing structure will be built to withstand current and future risks. Narragansett officials reached their decision following technical assistance provided by the Rhode Island Coastal Management Program, which helped develop the tool. Other tool partners are the University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island Sea Grant.
