The District initiated the Upper New River Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) to identify the flooding problems and associated hazards in the Upper New River watershed, and to develop alternatives to mitigate these flooding hazards. The District and Stantec (the selected Consultant) developed a final recommended plan by working with the public and stakeholders through individual and public meetings.
Most of the area within the Upper New River ADMP watershed and study area is undeveloped and relatively pristine, undisturbed Sonoran Desert. Preparing an ADMP before substantial land development allowed the District, its consultant and the stakeholder team to develop flood mitigation measures that utilize and optimize the natural drainage features, complement the physical and natural environment and typically cost less compared to implementing post-development flood mitigation measures. Floodplain managers, municipalities, planners, developers and land owners can use and implement the Upper New River ADMP for planning and designing flood mitigation solutions and for guiding or regulating development that either affects drainage or is within the floodplain within the Upper New River watershed.
Central objectives of the Upper New River ADMP were:
The ADMP was completed in 2008.
