Ocean Park Visit

7 days after Hurricane Maria, the San Juan Bay Estuary program visited Ocean Park to find the streets flooded. The SJBEP representatives documented challenges associated with street flooding simultaneously with wastewater exposure, due to urban infrastructure saturation after Hurricane María. This is what we refer to when climate change is mentioned; to vulnerable areas, loss of goods, diseases due to contact with dirty water. The SJBEP encouraged its followers to be part of the solution to these new challenges.
