Pughsville Area Drainage Improvements


Design being finalized.  Planned construction award Spring 2024.

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 Street from Townpoint Road to the Outfall at the end of John Street in Chesapeake. A stormwater pond will also be included South of Queen Street 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 Street being in the City of Chesapeake it should be noted that coordination between the two municipalities is required.
