Delaware Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee holds final informational session

A panel that recently finished its preliminary report on the potential risks posed by rising sea levels will discuss its research today at Cape Henlopen High School.

The session is being held from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.  It is the fifth and final meeting at which members of the Delaware Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee are unveiling their preliminary work and the potential impact of sea level rise on Delaware.  “Residents can learn more about the causes of sea level rise and the potential impacts to homes, infrastructure, natural resources and our economy,” according to a statement from the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. “Participants can speak with committee members and scientists, view maps of vulnerable areas and provide comments on the ways sea level rise may affect them, their businesses and communities.”  CLICK HERE to find out more about the sea level rise study.  Cape Henlopen High School, the site of today’s meeting, is located at 1270 Kings Highway in Lewes.
