Lake Bradford / Chubb Lake

Lake Bradford and Chubb Lake are located in the northwest part of Virginia Beach adjacent to Joint Expeditionary Base (JEB) Little Creek and Chesapeake Beach.  The stormwater drainage systems for Bradford Acres, Chesapeake Beach, Church Point, Hermitage Elementary, Lake Shores, North Beach, Pleasure House Road, part of Thoroughgood, and portions of Northampton Boulevard and Shore Drive drain to these lakes.  During Hurricane Matthew, the water level rose significantly resulting in flooding around the lakes and in upstream neighborhoods.  Efforts here will help alleviate widespread flooding due to moderate to heavy rain events occurring during high tides.
