Coastal Resilience Report by lauren miller-donnelly
"Residents on the street tell me that when the rain comes it runs rapidly down the street. I also noticed that there is driving onto the marsh to load boats as seen by the vehicle tracks on the marsh at low tide. the culvert is exposed and was dripping> debris mat material was showing and rocks were moved. The concrete boat ramp is severely eroded. Vehicles are using the ramp to drive onto the marsh. There is also storm debris here from last high tides. This is the most severe erosion of all the access points in the neighborhood."
