Subject: City Wide Drainage Needs Assessment Report (March 2007)

In the spring of 2005 , the Public Utilities/Works Department secured the services of HDR ,a nationally recognized Architectural and Engineering Firm with a local office in Hampton Roads, to complete a drainage needs assessment of our residential neighborhoods that would convey the magnitude of city wide drainage needs and the associated costs to meet these needs. This report was presented to City Council on January 8,2007.

For further information, the City of Portsmouth will be holding 3 public education sessions in June/July 2007 to present the full report and allow the opportunity for questions. The scheduling of these events will be included on the City’s web page or if you prefer you may contact the Public Works office at 393-8666 and ask to be placed on the mailing list.
