Downtown Suffolk Drainage Improvements

The purpose of Downtown Suffolk Drainage Improvements project is to reduce flooding that occurs during a normal rain even in the downtown area including Jackson St, S Saratoga St, and W Washington St. This will be accomplished through a series of storm pipe upgrades and improvements that will ultimately tie into an existing system in N Saratoga St just North of W Washington St.
