In order to mitigate historical flooding to Luke Air Force Base, the Dysart Drain project was implemented. The project consists of a 100-year channel and detention basin (at the Falcon Dunes Golf Course) as well as an ancillary collector channel northeast of the detention basin. The project primarily provides flood protection for Luke Air Force Base. In accordance with the IGA, the District was the design and construction lead for the project and was a cost share partner with the U.S. Air Force. The District is responsible for operating and maintaining the ancillary collector channel and the U.S. government is responsible for the channel, detention basin and related features.

In addition to its direct flood hazard mitigation benefits, the Dysart Drain serves as a backbone for the northwest portion of the White Tanks Area Drainage Master Plan, acting as an outfall for numerous facilities.

In conjunction with the Dysart Drain project, the Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) widened the bridges over Dysart Road and El Mirage Road. The District was lead agency for related construction. MCDOT is responsible for the inspection and maintenance of both bridges.
