Description:
Abstract:
This dataset shows the wastewater treatment plants (WWTP's) in the San Francisco Bay that are vulnerable to a 100-year coastal flood with a 1.4 meter sea level rise.
Purpose:
Identify WWTP's vulnerable to a 100-year coastal flood with a 1.4 meter sea-level rise and assess the risks associated.
Supplemental_Information:
"Vulnerable" WWTP's are those where the flooding extent inundates more than 10 percent of the WWTP polygon.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The WWTP polygon shapefile was intersected with the year 2100 flooding extent. All WWTP's which were flooded over at least 10% of the footprint were considered "vulnerable."
Logical_Consistency_Report: The dataset is topologically correct.
Completeness_Report: Data set has been visually inspected.
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The attributes were derived directly from the EPA PCS database. <http://www.epa.gov/waterscience/ftp/basins/gis_data/>
In the case where treatment plants were located, but did not exist in the database, the footprint was simply outlined with no attributes.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The locations of the WWTP's were checked against the NAIP imagery from 2005 as well as compared to Google Earth which has higher resolution imagery. The footprints of the WWTP was then outlined at a scale of 1:10,000
