Preliminary Investigation of the Effects of Sea-Level Rise on Groundwater Levels in New Haven, Connecticut
David M. Bjerklie (au)
This study concludes that basements of some buildings and underground utilities in New Haven, CT may be at risk of being inundated by rising groundwater by the end of the 21st century due to projected rates of sea level rise for the area. A projected three-foot increase in sea level can be expected to increase groundwater levels in coastal areas, presenting long-term water management issues that could be very costly to mitigate. Groundwater levels may rise even higher if groundwater recharge -- the rate at which water is added to groundwater through precipitation -- also increases. This is one of the first reports on a site in Connecticut to examine the effects of sea-level rise on groundwater in a complex urban environment. The models used illustrate concepts associated with rising sea levels that can be extrapolated to other areas throughout southern New England, and will provide information for the engineering community as they plan for rising groundwater levels. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
