The second of the “Extreme Water Levels: Impacts and Strategies” Webinar Series by the Georgian Bay Association (GBA) and Georgian Bay Forever (GBF), this webinar will focus on:
- Natural Coastal Processes: Naturalizing Shorelines – Hard vs. Soft. What to do (and not to do) on shorelines – what erosion impacts can we expect.
- Flooding – High Water Mark (Land/Water Interface). What to do about shoreline cabins, sheds, docks, and boathouses. How should they be reconfigured (raised or moved)? What are the impacts/regulations? Should the municipal high water level mark be changed?
- Storms, waves and wakes. What can we expect from higher wind strengths and more frequent and intense storms increasing wave action? What can be done to reduce harmful boat wakes?
- Coastal infrastructure – (also more in webinar 3). What are the impacts on municipal infrastructure, shoreline businesses (including marinas) contractors, and other services – of extreme high and low water levels? How can those impacted adopt?
