During this forum, we will have two presentations from non-DEP employees. The first will be a presentation by Tricia Kyzar, Jessica Beach and Eban Bean of the University of Florida and the City of St. Augustine. They will be presenting on their FRCP project titled "Assess Vulnerability of Onsite Treatment and Disposal Systems (OSTDS) to Sea Level Rise and Storm Surge to Develop Adaptation Plans (Phase 1)". The second presentation will be by Renee Collini of PLACE:SLR and the title of this presentation is "Get to Know the Program for Local Adaptation to Climate Effects: Sea Level Rise (PLACE:SLR)." After this, the DEP staff will launch the Sea Level Impact Projection (SLIP) tool. Finally, we will wrap up the forum with some updates from FRCP, such as informing people about the Resilient Florida Grant Program and the new story map. Attendees will be invited to ask questions, provide announcements and updates.
