Document Description
The project sponsor, SFO, proposes to implement the proposed project to address flood protection and future sea-level rise for the expected lifespan of the shoreline improvements. The proposed project would install new shoreline protection infrastructure that would comply with current Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) requirements for flood protection and incorporate protection for future sea-level rise. The Airport’s 8-mile shoreline and western landside boundary are divided into 16 reaches based on shoreline orientation, existing protection type, existing foreshore conditions, and existing landside conditions. Reach-specific design criteria were developed for 15 of the reaches, including 13 shoreline reaches and two landside reaches, based on the requirements promulgated by FEMA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Based on current FEMA requirements and guidance from the California Ocean Protection Council adopted in March 2018, the project proposes to construct shoreline protection improvements specific to 15 of the reaches to eliminate the probability of substantial inundation at the Airport until 2085.
