Gila Bend ADMP Update
The ADMP identified three broad recommended solutions: a set of floodwater management tools for guiding future development, flood control structures to be implemented by development, and flood control structures to be publicly funded. The third component centers on recommended improvements on Sand Tank Wash, including reconstruction of the Sand Tank Wash levee upstream of the Gila Bend Canal, and construction of a Gila Bend Canal overchute on Bender Wash, a retention basin upstream of Interstate 8 and an upstream floodwater detention facility.
The District updated the hydrologic model and the mitigation plan for the Gila Bend Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) watershed in April, 2015. The purpose of the update was to: update the hydrologic models from the Gila Bend ADMP using the new NOAA 14 rainfall depth and the latest version of the DDMSW; identify any significant differences between the existing and the updated hydrologic models; and make recommendations for need of further analyses.
