Sea level is anticipated to rise by as much as 55 inches over the next century, which will have
major implications for many of the cities that surround San Francisco Bay. The Hayward
Shoreline, from San Leandro Creek to the Alameda Creek Flood Control Channel, is a typical
East San Francisco Bay low-lying shoreline which provides vital ecological, industrial and
residential functions yet is already vulnerable to inundation from both tidal and fluvial sources.
