Buckeye FRS No. 3 is one of three flood retarding structures north of Interstate 10 and south of the White Tank Mountains. The earth-filled dam detains floodwater and conveys it via a pipe and open floodway to the Hassayampa River. Together the three structures detain floodwater from a 90-square-mile area. The structure is 2.3 miles in length and has a height of 21 feet, with a storage capacity of 640 acre-feet. The U.S. Soil Conservation Service, now the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), was the federal sponsor. The District and the U.S. Soil Conservation Service were cost share partners on this project.
