City Partners with Broward County to Install Tidal Gauge

The City of Deerfield Beach has partnered with Broward County to establish a tidal monitoring station at Sullivan Park. This gauge will track varying tide levels to establish local trends in sea level rise, frequency of tidal flooding and record storm surge levels.


Broward County has been leading an effort throughout the County to establish a regional monitoring network and set regional resilience standards. Tide level data is critical to support policy decisions such as determining minimum seawall height guidelines and for use in future modeling and analysis.
