Rising Water Levels Threat to City’s Municipal Harbor Plan

A recent environmental report given to the City of Boston clearly indicates waterfront high tides will consistently rise creating some serious damage to the North End/Waterfront neighborhood.

One city employee told a community organization that eventually water could extend out as far as Faneuil Hall with many neighborhood streets and The Greenway affected. Structures built on the waterfront will experience the same problem.

While city officials are working with numerous environment agencies to develop a possible preventive solution, possibly a seawall, they are still planning to develop on the waterfront despite the projected dangers.

Why would the city and developers invest millions or billions of dollars to build on property that could be underwater in the near future?

It makes absolutely no sense especially if the areas no solution to what may eventually become a disaster situation.

You can’t fool mother nature!
