District: 4 - Clint L. Hickman

The District completed the Glendale/Peoria Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) in 1987. The District partnered with the City of Glendale, City of Peoria and other agencies to construct the Northern and Orangewood Storm Drain and Basin project in 2001 in accordance with the ADMP. The project included a basin at 63rd Avenue and Northern Avenue, and storm drains along Northern Avenue and Orangewood Avenue, with an ultimate outfall at the New River.

The Northern Avenue Storm Drain Project, also a recommended component of the Glendale/Peoria ADMP, enhances the efficiency of the previously constructed project, directing storm water to the basin at 63rd Avenue, while mitigating 10-year flooding hazards historically affecting the downstream developed area. The City of Glendale acted as lead agency throughout the project and owns, operates and maintains the completed project.


Design was completed by the City of Glendale. Construction commenced in July 2009 and was completed in March 2011.
