REPORT: Global Warming Goes Downtheshore

The Shore: Inundated Boardwalks and Receding Beaches

–North Wildwood could be turned into an island, separated from Wildwood Crest by shallow flooding from across New Jersey Avenue.

–Cape May Beach would face accelerated erosion, and on average, Shore beaches could retreat inland between 50 and 150 meters.

Camden: Water Supply at Risk

–Camden could find increasing levels of salt water in its drinking water, since global warming-induced sea-level rise would push the salt front higher up the Delaware River. If the salt front reaches the Camden area, the city may have to shut its water supply wells and find an alternate source of water. If the salt front recedes higher, it could also affect the water supply in Philadelphia.
