San Francisco Bay Regional CHARGCoastal Hazards Adaptation Resiliency Group

With a growing realization of the implications and impacts of future sea level rise and the current challenges with extreme tides, leaders from federal, state, local agencies, and non-governmental organizations in the San Francisco Bay region have come together to address various aspects of flood protection on a regional scale. For the first time ever, starting in 2014, a working group of over 100 engineers, planners, scientists, and policy makers launched CHARG–the San Francisco Bay Region Coastal Hazards Adaptation Resiliency Group–to provide a forum for ongoing discussions to develop and implement regional flood protection solutions to sea level rise and extreme tides.

The draft goals of this group are to improve regional coordination among federal, state, local, private and NGOs; identify and work together to solve regional flood management issues; exchange ideas and transfer technical knowledge and expertise; speak as one unified voice in developing policy; and develop local, state and federal financing and funding strategies.

This web page serves as a repository for the Working Group's communications.

San Francisco Bay Regional CHARG can be contacted through the CHARG Facilitator, Sybil Hatch who can be reached at s.hatch@conveyinc.com or 510-558-8825 x101.
