St. Augustine is one of the oldest cities in the U.S. It includes multiple glorious and historical buildings, roads, and…sewers. Constant water-rushes wears them out, and over time, they've become less effective. It is time to take action to preserve these national sites. Many businesses suffer from these disastrous coastal floods. The sea life in the waters face devastating consequences like the dolphins parting from their pods. And these roads are important for getting around the city. I propose a solution that involves an increase of awareness within the community. Fight the Flood will be a group that’ll sponsor with these local businesses to help with; a mass sewer/drainage renewal, an expansion on the barrier by the Intercoastal, and funding to reduce flood insurances. Lives, jobs, and communities of this great U.S. city are at stake from this growing problem with storms that are becoming even more damaging.
