Our gates are open from 7AM until 9PM daily, providing longer access hours than many self-storage facilities in the area. All units are conveniently located on the ground level to significantly reduce the time it takes to load and unload your vehicle.
Jack Rabbit offers free truck rentals with move-in and also rents trucks to storage customers and the public.
We're your one-stop shop for all the boxes, locks, tape and other moving supplies you’ll need.
Simply schedule a reservation with the Resident Manager at the location where you are renting. For added protection of your stored goods, all units feature either Climate Control or Air-Flow Design. Premium HVAC systems control temperature and regulate humidity in our modern Climate Control units. Natural air flow is maximized to keep these units well ventilated without the use of the HVAC systems.
When we opened in 1977, our goal was to bring a new concept, then called “mini-warehouses”, to Hampton Roads.
Take a virtual tour of our modern storage facilities and see why Jack Rabbit offers the best all-around storage experience. Moving is never easy for those involved, and you may not realize the effect it has on others and the Earth.  Think about the boxes, the bubble wrap, those awful packing peanuts and plastic bags wrapped around every item. At Jack Rabbit Self Storage, our staff is acutely aware that each self-storage unit is like a big, walk-in treasure chest. There are many above-ground natural gas storage facilities scattered across the state, managed by the 10 investor-owned and municipal Local Distribution Companies in Virginia such as Roanoke Gas and Atmos Energy.
Virginia Natural Gas operates three propane-air plants, two in southern Virginia and one in Northern Virginia.
Several underground natural gas reservoirs in Virginia are far more recent; they were created in the 20th Century. During the 1940's, the Claudius Crozet's railroad tunnel under the Blue Ridge was repurposed to serve as an artificial storage cavern for natural gas. Over 300 million years ago, in what geologists would later classify the Mississippian subperiod of the Carboniferous period, modern Smyth County was located at the edge of an ocean. Since at least the Ice Age, groundwater circulating through those deposits has emerged at the surface in springs.
In the 1780's, investors from Tidewater (including the husband of Patrick Henry's sister) started digging shallow wells to extracted the brine. Throughout eight decades of extensive pumping of brine, voids were created underground as the fluid with dissolved salt was carried to the surface for processing. In 1996 the Environmental Protection Agency issued Underground Injection Control permits so the caverns created by earlier salt mining could be expanded.
During the summer months when demand for home heating is low, gas is carried by the East Tennessee Natural Gas pipeline north from the Gulf Coast, from nearby coalbed methane wells in Appalachian coal fields, and from natural gas wells drilled into Appalachian shales (such as the Marcellus formation) and hydraulically fractured.
The surplus gas is injected underground during the low-demand periods, the pressure displaces any remaining brine, and gas molecules fill the spaces once occupied by salt crystals and brine. When the weather cools and demand increases during the winter, the stockpiled natural gas is extracted and piped to customers when there is a surge in demand.
Virginia’s 21 natural gas exploration and production companies produced 147.3 BCF of natural gas from 7,400 wells in 2013. Creating an above-surface storage reservoir would have been more expensive than utilizing the Maccrady Shale, but the underground geology was not ideal.
The withdrawal of natural gas did not result in compaction of the reservoir; the voids between the rock particles remained.
In undeveloped areas within the park, water hits tree leaves, soaks into the soil, and goes underground. Virginia soils can keep water for up to two weeks, before evapotranspiration sucks all the moisture from near the surface.


If rainfall is sufficient, however, raindrops may seep below the root zone and accumulate under the surface in a layer of soil or rock, to become groundwater rather than surface runoff or transpiration. The average depth of weathering, estimated from the depth to which well casing can be driven, is about 100 feet on uplands, 95 feet on hilltops, 90 feet on hillsides, and 60 feet in gullies.
A zone of water-saturated rock is called an aquifer if enough water accumulates underground in the pores between rock particles to supply a natural spring or an artificial water well.
After a rainstorm in Northern Virginia, the sandstone bedrock west of Centreville (the Mesozoic Basin that formed when the Atlantic Ocean first opened) will absorb substantial water between the grains of sandstone. For water quality purposes, water wells supplying drinking water to rural houses are sealed (cased) for the top 30 or so feet.
All bedrock is not the same; rainwater does not flow quickly through the surface into all sediments, or through fractures in all bedrock. Groundwater is stratified underground in a pattern similar to a sponge that has not been used for a day.
When you drill a well down into an aquifer and cross from air-filled to water-filled pores between soil particles, you are crossing the "water table." The water table is the top level of the soil where a well fill with water. The number of pores with water in the vadose zone will increase after a summer rainstorm, and the water table itself will rise. Most drinking water wells for single family residences in Virginia are drilled 70-400 feet deep. Drilling deep allows drillers to intersect multiple layers of water-soaked rock, or to intersect enough vertical distance in one aquifer to supply the minimum required. Drinking water from most wells is not chlorinated or disinfected with ultraviolet light, and well water is not flouridated either. Well water may include excessive amounts of calcium (creating "hard water"), iron, or sulfur. Where a stream valley has eroded down to the level of the water table at the top of the aquifer, water emerges at a spring. If the water table drops during the summer, when evapotranspiration increases, a spring may dry up, only to re-appear in the winter once the water table rises again. In a normal year the groundwater levels begin to rise in November and continue to rise until April or May, when the growing season begins. In April or May the water table begins a steady downward trend, interrupted only by short periods of heavy rainfall in some years, until killing frosts in the fall terminate the consumption of water by plants. The aquifer may be contaminated with gasoline or heavy metals from automobile brake particles on pavement, or from bacteria from animal feces - but in many cases, the soil particles will trap the contaminants. Government agencies now encourage developers to direct runoff to seep into groundwater rather than to surface streams.
Low Impact Development (LID) projects are now designed to minimize surface runoff, by diverting and retaining rainfall so it soaks into the ground. One potential long-term impact of diverting surface water underground: modern pollution may be pushed into the groundwater, polluting underground aquifers.
On the Eastern Shore, nitrogen and phosphorus have been applied at high rates to the soil for farming and for disposal of wastes from chicken-raising operations.
The largest grains of sand stayed where the crust was warped upward at the Norfolk Arch along today's Peninsula, while smaller clay particles moved to the lower-energy waters in depressed embayments to the north (Salisbury Embayment in Maryland) and south (Albemarle Embayment in North Carolina).
Today, the Cretaceous sediments above the Norfolk Arch form an unconsolidated aquifer with patches of impervious clay.
During the Paleocene, Eocene, Oligocene, Miocene and the Pliocene epochs (formerly called the Tertiary Period), sea levels rose and fell, alternately drowning and exposing the eastern part of Virginia. West of the Fall Line, the recharge area (the source of the groundwater, where raindrops seeped below the surface) will be located close to a natural spring or human-drilled well. Even in the Blue Ridge, igneous rocks are sufficiently fractured to allow surface waters to seep into the ground, and be pumped back to the surface wherever a well intercepts a fracture. Of the 43" of rain that falls annually on the Coastal Plain, 10" infiltrates underground - but only 1" reaches the deep layers of the aquifer. The water originates in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and is drawn from a 650-foot deep artesian well at the plant. Aquifers in the Coastal Plain may be recharged from as much as 20-50 miles away, at the Fall Line. Much of the water in the Lower Potomac Aquifer was trapped when the sediments were first deposited in the Cretaceous Period.


Obviously the municipal and industrial wells in Hampton Roads, the Peninsula, the Middle Peninsula, the Northern Neck, and the Eastern Shore do not dry up quickly once pumping starts. However, if wells pump freshwater out of an aquifer faster than that aquifer is recharged from the surface or adjacent freshwater zones, then saltwater or brackish water in the Chesapeake Bay estuaries may intrude further into aquifers underneath the Coastal Plain. In the humid climate of Virginia Beach, the periodic recharge of freshwater through the sand units of the shallow aquifer system occurs often enough to create a dynamic equilibrium whereby freshwater flows continually down and away from the center of the ridges to mix with and sweep brackish water and saltwater back toward the tidal rivers, bays, salt marshes, and the Atlantic Ocean. Fresh ground-water recharge to deeper units is hindered in some areas by semi-confining and confining sediments beneath the water table aquifer, particularly those of the Yorktown confining unit. Groundwater may be a renewable resource, but an aquifer can be drained faster than it recharges naturally.
The intent of the permitting program was to prevent conflicts between existing and new users. Groundwater provides nearly all the public and private drinking water north of the York River, and much of the drinking water in the southern half of Hampton Roads. DEQ's permits do not conserve all the groundwater, or even ensure a sustainable level of use. After the 2002 drought, the state required localities to develop water supply plans to ensure adequate drinking water for the next 40 years. State and local agencies also recognized that groundwater should be managed more comprehensively. Starting in 2014, DEQ expanded the boundaries of the Eastern Virginia Ground Water Management Area to include all of the Coastal Plain north of King William County through Fairfax County, up to the boundary of the City of Alexandria.
By 2014, DEQ had issued 177 groundwater withdrawal permits for the previous Eastern Virginia Groundwater Management Area, in the area designated prior to expansion. The state agency also proposed that new permits issued to the top 14 users in the Eastern Virginia Groundwater Management Area would reduce the authorized level of groundwater withdrawal by 50%, to approximately the current levels of use.
Farmers fear that brackish water, spread on fields through irrigation for a number of years, could result in a buildup of salt in the soil. Municipal and industrial users can blend freshwater from surface sources with brackish water from groundwater wells and still satisfy customer requirements. Desalination is typically the most expensive way to generate drinking water from seawater, because the energy required to force the brackish water through membranes is expensive. Desalination requires more energy as the percentage of salt increases, so desalination plants next to the Atlantic Ocean require more energy to produce freshwater than desalination plants further inland.
The US government tried to drill wells at Fort Monroe to find fresh groundwater, but drilling to a deeper depth did not result in fresher water. In the 1990's, the discovery of a 35-million year old impact crater in the lower Chesapeake Bay provided a new explanation. In addition to potentially-excessive groundwater withdrawals by municipal drinking water wells, primary concerns in Ground Water Management Area include industrial water use by paper mills at Franklin and West Point, and by chicken processing plants or facilities supporting offshore energy development on the Eastern Shore.
Assessing the Contamination Risk of Private Well Water Supplies in Virginia (2001 dissertation at Virginia Tech by Amanda C. Our goal is unchanged: to provide the best possible storage experience at the lowest price possible. In dry years the downward trend may continue into the winter, and unless winter precipitation is sufficient to cause recharge, there is little rise before the next growing season begins. In contrast, where water only partially fills the pore spaces of an aquifer, the upper surface of the saturated zone (which is called the water table) is free to rise and decline, and the aquifer is referred to as unconfined (or as a water-table aquifer). There is only one reservoir on the Coastal Plain of the Middle Peninsula used for drinking water (Beaverdam Lake in Gloucester County), and no drinking water reservoirs on the Northern Neck.
Suddenly you realize there’s more work to do around the house than vacuum a few dust bunnies and gather up old publications for the recycling bin.
