Ripple Effect

In November 2021, Virginia Beach voters overwhelmingly supported a resiliency package for several key flood protection initiatives to include drainage improvements, tide gates, pump stations and flood barriers throughout the city. 

The projects are led by Public Works with support from a community oversight community for transparency and accountability.

A series of videos have been created by the City to educate and inform residents on the progress made by the Flood Protection Program and the impacts these projects will have on our community.
