Virginia The City of Norfolk has awarded an $11.6-million contract to Arcadis to design stormwater infrastructure enhancements to protect Ohio Creek communities against future flooding and continued sea-level rise. The project consists of three water-management strategies: Protect the shoreline so that high water levels in the river do not enter the neighborhood or the stormwater system; capture rainfall across the watershed to slow its flow into the stormwater system and provide additional storage for rainwater so the water does not pond in the streets; and introduce a living shoreline feature to minimize erosion and increase environmental wellness. The design phase is expected to run through December 2018, with construction expected to begin in March 2019. The estimated construction cost is $115 million.
