The Lower Battery Seawall Repair Project is one of the City’s immediate priorities. About $23 million has already been budgeted for it since 2014. Jacob Lindsey, City Planning Director, will provide background on the project, and update on what’s happening. “The crumbling battery wall along a mile of Murray Boulevard was built a century ago and has weathered several major floods and severe storms, including the devastating Hurricane Hugo in 1989. [The Lower Battery Seawall Repair Project] is the first repair project for a seawall that is not failing — but one that has failed. Weather conditions continue to worsen: In the 1960s, the city had about four days of tidal flooding but experienced a record 50 flooding days in 2017. With the sea level expected to rise 2½ feet over the coming century, experts say coastal cities must begin the costly and time-consuming work of making their infrastructure more resilient.” (from the Post and Courier, 1/1/18)This course provides 1.0 AIA Learning Unit.This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the status of the project and the future plans for it.
