The Hampton Roads region of Virginia has 14 military installations spread across 17 local jurisdictions. It is our highest concentration of military assets in the country, where 1 in 6 residents are associated with our nation’s defense.The region is confronted now with rising waters. Tidewater is a remarkable study of how the military and local jurisdictions are working to combat sea level rise. Tidewater demonstrates that an innovative whole-of-government problem-solving model being attempted by local and military leaders is the only way to ensure the continued strength of our national security, along with the continued prosperity of the region and the nation.

People featured in the film include planners, admirals, clergy, security experts and residents. Our county and municipal officials, as well as Aberdeen Proving Ground representatives, are particularly welcome to attend this screening.
