Historically, Pima County has recorded several residential concerns, detailing this area as a reach of wash with severe flooding problems. The purpose of this report is to present the engineering analyses of four alternative remedial flood-control measures.
Offsite drainage impacts the project site from several watersheds whose headwaters lie to the northeast of the project site. This report will address the manner in which the existing offsite and the post-development onsite drainage will be conveyed across this project.
This study proposes to reduce flood damages from both Tanque Verde Creek and offsite flows, as they affect the Fortyniner's Country Club Estates and the Arbor Vista subdivisions.
The purpose of this report is to assist the Pima County Board of Supervisors in assessing whether the Black Wash area requires area-specific flood control policies.
The purpose of the study is to identify existing flooding problems for fifteen homes adjacent and west of Holladay Street which have experienced flooding in the past three years. A 1991 follow-up report is included that corrects an error in the earlier report's estimation of the split flow quantities at the intersection.
Millstone Manor #6 is a subdivision that was recorded in the mid-1950's. All records indicate no engineering took place with regards to potential for drainage improvements. This report will address what the natural floodprone areas are and will recommend how future permits should be processed.
Covers an area in southeastern Pima County that drains the Arivaca Creek watershed. The purpose of the report is to estimate peak discharge for the 50 year storm frequency event, utilizing the rational method (Q=CiA). This method pre-dates that outlined in the Hydrology Manual for Engineering Design and Floodplain Management within Pima County, Sept. 1979, and is considered less accurate. It is recommended that this report be archived and discontinued for use for regulatory purposes.
The Arizona Department of Transportation, the Arizona Game & Fish Department and the Arizona State Parks Board are required to conduct a study every three years on watercraft fuel consumption and recreational watercraft usage. The fuel consumption data is collected to determine the allocation of motor vehicle fuel tax to the State Lake Improvement Fund. The information on recreational watercraft usage patterns on Arizona’s lakes and rivers is necessary, in part, to determine the distribution of SLIF funds to applicants.
