Lake Bradford/Chubb Lake

The City of Virginia Beach's Department of Public Works is seeking public input on repetitive residential and roadway flooding within the area adjacent to Joint Expeditionary Base (JEB) Little Creek, Chesapeake Beach, Northampton Boulevard, and Shore Drive. Your opinions and suggestions are important in helping the City of Virginia Beach understand the concerns and impacts of flooding in your area. 

Your input will greatly assist us in developing a storm water drainage improvement program that will address flooding in areas that include, but are not limited to:  Bradford Acres, Chesapeake Beach, Church Point, Hermitage Elementary, Lake Shores, Northampton Boulevard, North Beach, Pleasure House Road, Shore Drive, and Thoroughgood.  

For more information about this project, please go to this link:  www.vbgov.com/LakeBradford  

Thank you.
