The Department of Public Utilities will be hosting two public workshops to discuss the City's ongoing Stormwater system assessment, flooding mitigation plans, and the actions needed to adapt to sea level rise. These workshops are an opportunity for the public to share their past experiences with flooding events in Hollywood as a way to help guide the development of the Stormwater Master Plan. Issues to be discussed: sea level rise, flooding, saltwater intrusion, groundwater table, storm systems, water quality, storm surge, low-lying elevations, backflow flooding, high tides, infrastructure and resilience. All are invited to attend either in-person or virtually. Register your virtual attendance here:
About the City of Hollywood Stormwater Master Plan Update (SWMP)
The SWMP will review and update the City’s overall stormwater system to account for the projected effects of sea level rise, storm surge, and other extreme weather events. The assessment aims to identify and prioritize areas that experience flooding, and will induce a series of Capital Improvement Projects that appropriately update drainage systems and coastal infrastructure. The SWMP will define implementable actions for proactive planning for the City to adapt to sea level rise and flooding.
