Windsor Woods, Princess Anne Plaza, & The Lakes

Windsor Woods, Princess Anne Plaza, and The Lakes are neighborhoods located in what was once the undeveloped headwaters of the Lynnhaven River.  According to aerial photos from 1949, the area was originally forest surrounded by farmland. Much of the area has relatively low elevations. This coupled with increasing sea levels (approximately 1-foot over the last 50 years) and the increasing frequency of storms with significant tides and rainfall amounts, has resulted in severe flooding of theses neighborhoods during storm events. The following projects will help reduce future flooding by installing tide gates, constructing stormwater pump stations, building flood barriers, creating additional stormwater storage, and improving the storm drain system.
