The Rainbow Valley Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) encompasses approximately 515 plus square miles, which includes the cities of Avondale, Goodyear, and Buckeye as well as unincorporated Maricopa County. The Study area is generally bounded by the Sierra Estrella Mountains on the east, Gila River on the North, the Buckeye Hills/Maricopa Mountains on the west, and extends southward toward I-8.
Western Maricopa County is experiencing rapid growth. This growth is causing changes in the land use and is affecting the natural drainage in the Study Area. Thus, the purpose of this ADMP is to identify flooding hazards and to plan flood control infrastructure improvements ahead of development.
The ADMP will involve a series of public meetings. The focus of the first meeting is to request any information and flooding history from stakeholders within the study area and present the findings of any preliminary identified flooding hazards. The second meeting will present the alternatives under consideration to mitigate the identified flood hazards. The final meeting will present the selective alternative.
The first phase, which involved mapping of the study area of the ADMS/P, is complete. This phase was a critical step needed to develop the hydraulic models in the ADMS/P so the flooding hazards can be identified and then plans can be developed. The mapping was completed in 2007.
The District initiated a consultant contract to perform the Study, and will immediately begin data collection activities along with an update of the Waterman Wash hydrology model.
