High water level events across the Great Lakes Basin in 2017 and 2019 caused widespread flooding and shoreline erosion, damaged property and infrastructure, and increased interest among communities to protect their coastlines and implement resiliency measures. In response, the Basin experienced an influx of resources and funding to assist communities in adopting solutions that have overwhelmed users. Through interviews with local decision-makers and resource-providing organizations, this research confirmed existing gaps and identified potential solutions to improve the implementation of coastal resiliency measures at a local scale.
