Map layers added to the map will appear in this window. The ordering of the layers on map can be controlled by clicking the up and down arrows next to each layer (when more than one layer is added). Layers can be temporarily turned on and off by clicking the appropriate button underneath the layer name.
Click the Remove button to remove the layer from the map. The transparency/opacity of each layer can be controlled with the slider below the layer name with 0% being fully transparent and 100% being fully opaque.
Adapting to climate change requires an understanding of potential hazards and exposure. These Municipal Snapshots provide easy access to information about the people, places, and assets that are at risk from climate impacts in each of New Jersey’s municipalities.
Summarizes the potential flood exposure of built infrastructure on which the community relies for services including wastewater treatment, energy generation, and transportation.
Summarizes the potential flood exposure of critical facilities and assets that the community needs to provide education, care, and public safety to residents.
Summarizes the potential flood exposure of natural and working lands, as well as sea-level rise impacts on coastal marshes (erosion and retreat) and public water access points.
Summarizes projected heat increases and the potential flood exposure of health-related sites including hospitals, nursing homes, and contaminated sites.
Summarizes potential flood exposure based on demographic data including socioeconomic status, housing, household composition, disability, minority status, language, and vehicle access.

Thank you for visiting the Water Risk and Equity Map. Please note that this map is for informational purposes only. These types of conclusions may be drawn from the map: general patterns and trends of flooding and known water quality issues in the state; general demographic trends; potential incidence of water related risks in specific communities; etc. Please note that the map is not meant for: making flood zone determinations, design elevations or guidance; drawing conclusions based on correlation; etc. More analysis is needed to establish firm conclusions about intersections in specific areas.
