Savannah Sea Level Sensors: The Rising Tides

For the past two years, GA Tech scientists and engineers have been working with the people of flood-vulnerable Savannah and Chatham County to improve emergency response and preparedness in a coastal region whose past, present — and future — are inextricably linked to water. The Smart Sea Level Sensors project originated in 2018, funded by a Georgia Smart Communities grant. Its primary purpose was to build and install real-time, internet-equipped sensors to relay data on the status of water levels across the county. That data in turn is used by officials to make decisions about where to deploy resources. Previously, a large swath of coastal Georgia had relied on a single gauge. Now there are more than 40 sensors in Chatham County alone, providing hyperlocal, instantaneous data.
