Virginia Beach Boulevard Pipeline Improvements



HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, is undertaking a multiphase project to decommission its Chesapeake-Elizabeth Treatment Plant (CETP), built in 1965, located at 5332 Shore Drive, in the City of Virginia Beach. An extensive study determined it was more advantageous to upgrade parts of the sanitary sewer system throughout the city rather than upgrade existing treatment plant process systems to meet the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality requirement to reduce treated discharges to the Chesapeake Bay. As part of this larger initiative, several sewer system improvement projects have been or will be implemented. One of these projects is located along a portion of Virginia Beach Boulevard.

Project Overview

The Virginia Beach Boulevard Sanitary Sewer Pipeline Improvement project will replace the existing sewer pipeline with a larger pipeline to move the increased sewer flow along Virginia Beach Boulevard from Kings Grant Road to Great Neck Road.  Portions of Virginia Beach Boulevard, intersections from Kings Grant Road to Great Neck Road, Eureka Avenue, and Parker Lane will be impacted at some point throughout construction.

Construction updates will be provided to you if impacts are expected or if the work will be in close proximity to your property.
