Combating Sea Levels in Cambridge: A Chat with Larry White on the City’s Flood Mitigation Project

February 9, 2022 by Spy & WHCP Community Radio

The “it takes a village” phrase comes to mind when talking to Larry White, Cambridge’s volunteer flood mitigation project manager. A seasoned water expert with decades of service with the Army Corp of Engineers before making Dorchester his home, White volunteered to head up a significant four-year effort to protect the city from storm surge and flooding protection.

The cost of the project could exceed $4 million, and it will be highly dependent on state and federal funds to secure the costs of these major infrastructure improvements.

In his Spy/WHCP interview, Larry defines the different phases of the project and previews the use of a living shoreline protection strategy to make Cambridge as safe as possible as it anticipates a future where catastrophic storms will seriously threaten the city’s way of life and economy.
