The Miami Herald picked up on the story of the need for coastal communities to update infrastructure to address sea-level rise in an article that appears here. The article emphasizes the high costs to prepare infrastructure for both current and future sea levels. For example, each of many stormwater pumps necessary in southeast Florida can cost from $10-150 million dollars depending on the costs for purchasing property on which to install them.
The article notes that more than just flooding due to outdated, insufficient drainage is a risk. Water supply, sewage transport and treatment facilities, and public infrastructure also will need to be modified or protected at significant cost.
