VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - As most of us know, flooding in Virginia Beach is a huge problem.

Now, the city is looking at how to get a handle on it in the Windsor Woods neighborhood.

FEMA reimbursed the city with more than $5 million for Hurricane Matthew relief.

The city manager wants to use that money on three pipe improvement projects. It's part of the Windsor Woods Stormwater Project.

The city council may discuss the topic at Tuesday night's council meeting.

Windsor Woods is one of the most flood prone neighborhoods in the city, but those pipes are only part of the solution. The city would also need to add a pump station and dredge part of the area.

If approved, construction on this project could begin next year.
