1) Tidal benchmarks are from NOAA http://www.opsd.nos.noaa.gov/bench.html
2) Avg yearly high water and low water is from "Shore Protection Manual," USACE, 1984.
3) Extreme high values are from observations. For Norfolk, water levels above MLLW (assuming storm surge
occurs at MHHW) are: 7.9 ft = 20 year storm; 8.9 ft = 50 year storm; and 9.8 ft = 100 year storm.
