January 5, 2022 Suffolk City Council approved authorization to acquire real property in fee simple and easements.
The purpose of the project is to provide for some much needed drainage improvements in the Pughsville Area. This will be accomplished by installing a drainage trunk line down John St from Townpoint Rd to the Outfall at the end of John St in Chesapeake. A stormwater pond will also be included South of Queen St to help attenuate some of the flow going into Chesapeake. The stormwater pond will also provide some water quality credits for the project. With a portion of the project along John St being in the City of Chesapeake it should be noted that coordination between the two municipalities is required.
