City Seeks Public Input on Sea Level Rise and Recurrent Flooding at Upcoming Public Meetings

Be sure to attend the meeting dedicated to your specific watershed.
​​​​​​​​​​
​​flooded carsIn recent years, an increase in sea level rise has resulted in more frequent flooding of low-lying areas. The city is also experiencing issues related to the storm water system’s reduced ability to adequately drain rainfall. Sea levels are expected to continue to rise in the future and at a higher rate. The City of Virginia Beach recognizes these challenges and is exploring solutions to the issues caused by sea level rise and recurrent flooding. 

The public is encouraged to attend one of several upcoming meetings where city representatives will provide residents with the opportunity to share their views and concerns. The information collected from the meetings will be used to develop the City’s long-term plans for sea level rise and recurrent flooding. 

Each of the meetings are scheduled to focus on specific watersheds within our region. To determine which watershed your home is located in, view the Watersheds Map here​.
