CZM Coastal Resilience Grant FY23

Cohasset Cove and James Brook Watershed Flood Vulnerability Assessment and Resiliency Strategies

The Town has been awarded $161,925 to assess the vulnerability of the Wastewater Treatment Plant and Influent Pump Station located in Jacob’s Meadow and other public assets to current and future flooding conditions within the Cohasset Cove and James Brook Watershed. The project, “Cohasset Cove and James Brook Watershed Flood Vulnerability Assessment and Resiliency Strategies,” will develop resiliency strategies to mitigate flooding risks to these critical local and regional resources.

The Town has been proactively working towards improving climate resilience of Cohasset Harbor and the James Brook watershed areas throughout the past several years. This project represents the next step in a series of ongoing climate resilience preparation and data collection initiatives that are a result of implementation efforts of long-range planning goals identified in the Town’s state-approved Municipal Harbor Plan and the Cohasset Master Plan.
