Study Purpose & Scope

Study Purpose and Scope:
The Virginia Beach Coastal Storm Risk Management Study is an investigation that will address the risk caused by storm surge flooding, waves, and erosion and then formulate plans to manage the impacts coastal storms have on the people and development in the city.

The study will consider sea level change and the past, current and future coastal storm risk management and resilience-planning initiatives and projects implemented by the City of Virginia Beach, USACE and other federal, state and local agencies.

The study began on July 21, 2022 and is expected to take at least three years to determine which coastal storm risk management solutions are feasible by:

  • Assessing the study area’s problems, opportunities and future without project conditions
  • Formulating plans address the coastal storm risk problems through structural, nonstructural, an or natural and/or nature-based features
  • Recommending a plan for authorization and construction

Study Authorization: The study was authorized by Section 1201 of the America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, dated January 3, 2018.
