SPUR Letter to CalOES on Draft 2023 State Hazard Mitigation Plan

Advocacy Letter

The draft 2023 State Hazard Mitigation Plan did not include mention of a newly understood climate risk known as groundwater rise. Groundwater rise is likely to cause flooding, toxin mobilization in soils, and deterioration of underground infrastructure at an accelerated pace. This letter is signed by SPUR partners working on groundwater rise and climate adaptation issues in the region.
