King Tides

King Tides are unusually high tides that occur each fall as a result of natural variations in atmospheric and oceanic conditions. Boynton Beach’s low-lying, coastal communities are vulnerable to tidal flooding which is likely to become more frequent and severe as sea levels rise.

The City regularly maintains storm drains and catch basins, and has installed tidal valves in affected neighborhoods to reduce the impacts of high tides. The City also participates in the Community Rating System of the National Flood Insurance Program resulting in a 20% discount for flood insurance premiums within the City.
