The District's Coordinated, Comprehensive, Collaborative Flood Hazard Mitigation Partnering (C3FHMP) effort addressed Strategic Initiative No.3 of the Flood Control District of Maricopa County 2009 Comprehensive Plan: Increase Collaboration and Partnerships. The District initiated the process to determine how the funding and resources of other entities could be best applied to mitigate flood hazards in Maricopa County, or where mutual benefits would be realized.
The 2009 Comprehensive Floodplain Management Plan and Program is intended to be used as a general guide for future decision-making in District activities. The Plan aims to present adequate background information to aid District staff in prioritizing areas for future studies and projects. The Plan identifies historic flooding events, reviews the District's efforts to solve flooding problems, and formulates five-year plans to reduce flooding through flood control project construction, floodplain identification, and planning programs throughout the county.
A report shall be prepared at least every five years beginning in 1985 and shall indicate the past efforts of the district in eliminating or minimizing flood control problems and state the planned future work of the district to eliminate or minimize flood control problems.
This report documents the existing drainage conditions related to Silverbell Trails Estates roadways and 100-year flow depths and includes qualitative and quantitative analyses of the existing hydrologic and hydraulic conditions.
The purpose of this study is to provide uniformity in how building permits are processed and development is regulated within sheet flood areas in order to ensure that improvements are adequately protected from flood hazards.
The purpose of this study is to determine the hydrologic and hydraulic impacts of the Aspen Fire of the summer of 2003 on the Sabino Canyon and Carter Canyon watersheds, which are in the vicinity of the Town of Summerhaven, located on Mount Lemmon in the Santa Catalina Mountains, Arizona.
This study was developed to identify the resources and applicable methodology for the delineation of primary flood corridors.
Work maps for the Mission Wash floodplain. Highlighted photographs show the floodplain limits and watersheds.
The purpose of this study is to develop a physical, process-based hydrologic model for the Finger Rock Wash watershed. A HEC-1 model was developed to estimate the 100-year discharge rate.
