The Dover Rising Waters initiative is a group of volunteer citizens working to implement climate actions identified in the City's Master Plan. Its first undertaking, the High Water Mark Project, seeks to engage community members in proposing and implementing public art projects that convey future flood risks as sea levels rise and extreme precipitation events become more frequent and intense. The goal of the project will be visualized through public art projects in Dover that spark community conversations about the impacts of flooding and rising sea levels.

The Dover Rising Waters initiative is a group of volunteer citizens working to implement climate actions identified in the City's Master Plan. Its first undertaking, the High Water Mark Project, seeks to engage community members in proposing and implementing public art projects that convey future flood risks as sea levels rise and extreme precipitation events become more frequent and intense. The goal of the project will be visualized through public art projects in Dover that spark community conversations about the impacts of flooding and rising sea levels.

The first round of the High Water Mark Project focuses on youth art in the form of a public contest. At least one winning project proposal will be selected, and the artist will win a cash prize.

Following the winning selection, the High Water Mark Project team will seek funding for implementation of the designs and collaborate with the winning artist to implement and publicize the project. Additional rounds will focus on professional artists and other interested parties.
