Town of Edisto Beach Flooding and Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment

The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium (SCSGC), Carolinas Integrated Sciences and Assessments (CISA), and College of Charleston’s Lowcountry Hazards Center (LCHC) assessed Edisto Beach’s vulnerability to flooding and sea level rise using a variety of methods. SCSGC and LCHC developed a high-resolution flood model to assess vulnerability to properties and roads. SCSGC and CISA conducted workshops with town staff and residents to describe current challenges and experiences with flooding, and to identify concerns for the future.
