CCP covers sea-level rise report, sewer study and no wake signs

The Captiva Community Panel was presented with the findings from a sea-level rise vulnerability assessment at its recent meeting, as well as heard updates on a comprehensive engineering study for a possible central sewer system and ways to reinstall manatee zone signs in the Roosevelt Channel.

On June 9, CCP Sea Level Rise Committee Chair Linda Laird was joined by consultant Dr. Cheryl Hapke, with Coastal Science Solutions, in presenting the completed resiliency assessment for Captiva.

"I'm very very impressed with the report," Laird said, explaining that it encompasses what will be impacted and affected based on the different levels of sea rise the island is anticipated to see.
