The Upper Camelback Wash Drainage Improvement Project includes the improvement of existing stormwater channels and basins within the city of Scottsdale. The project includes two channel branches, between approximately 92nd and 96th streets from Shea Boulevard to Sweetwater Avenue.

Conveyance capacity of the existing system of open channels and street conveyance is limited to a 2-year event level in some areas, creating a flood hazard for an estimated 600 structures. The proposed project will improve system capacity to provide protection for the 100-year storm event.


Construction started in July 2012 and was completed in May 2015. The City of Scottsdale was the lead agency for construction, and will be responsible for maintenance of the improvements.
