SFO Shoreline Inspection & Emergency Response Planning
Client: San Francisco International Airport
Service: Climate Change & Resiliency
Staff: Joe Hill, Christine Ko & Carly Parsons
JHCE performed engineering services in a collaborative effort with AECOM and Telamon to assess and improve the condition of, monitoring, and emergency repair capabilities for the SFO Shoreline Protection System. The work included design of a monitoring and instrumentation system to detect flooding and seismic events, enhanced visual inspection of SFO shoreline assets to assess vulnerability to extreme events (flooding, earthquake, etc.), and development of an emergency response plan. Features assessed included riprap density, size & condition, presence of vegetation & sediment, exposed soils, slopes, and seepage. JHCE developed reporting format for annual monitoring and created GIS maps for visualizing shoreline ratings.
