About the Project
North Richmond, located near the beautiful San Francisco Bay shoreline, is becoming more vulnerable to flooding from sea-level rise due to climate change. According to current projections, in 30 years, the West County Wastewater (WCW) facility, serving a population of 100,000, will often be flooded, reducing its ability to treat our wastewater. By the end of the century, parts of the North Richmond neighborhood and Richmond Parkway will be flooded during storms and high tides unless we act now to protect our shoreline and neighborhood.
Thanks to Measure AA funding, North Richmond has a unique opportunity to create a plan that will help the community adapt to sea-level rise and protect its shoreline. This visionary project brings together community members, scientists, and design experts to increase ecosystem resilience, protect neighborhoods and wastewater service, and craft a shoreline plan that will improve the way communities use and access the shoreline.

Envisioning Solutions to Sea Level Rise in North Richmond
On January 24, 2022, we hosted an informational webinar to share more information about the project and the opportunity for community members to be involved in the design process. Click the link below to view a recording of the webinar.
