For many years, Miami Beach had increasingly been experiencing flooding especially during King Tides. A combination of atmospheric events (e.g., rainfall, tropical storms, etc.), tidal effects, hydrological and hydrogeological characteristics, and sea level rise make the situation of Miami Beach (City) unique in comparison to other coastal cities locally and regionally. It is for this reason that the City decided to take aggressive action to tackle these problems by setting short, mid, and long term goals for implementing aggressive measures to mitigate flooding and the detrimental effects of sea level rise.
