This paper summarizes findings from Water Research Foundation Project 4285, which was sponsored the Foundation and Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority (Roehl et al. 2012). The project’s thesis is as follows. Coastal fresh water intakes are at risk due to sea-level rise (SLR) and climate change. Because of past storms and droughts, long-term historical data already contains information about how a hydrologic system will respond. A predictive model that is accurate across a site’s full range of historical forcing can be used to assess risk.
