The Spook Hill Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP), completed in 2002, identified regional flood control infrastructure necessary for a 35-square-mile area located in northeast Mesa. The ADMP watershed extends from the Usery Mountains on the north and the Apache Trail on the east, to the Buckhorn-Mesa structures on the west and south.

The Ellsworth Road and McKellips Road project is the fourth scheduled project in support of this ADMP and likely will involve construction of a basin at Ellsworth Road and McKellips Road, and storm drain or channel south along Ellsworth Road and east along McKellips Road. The basin rights-of-way are in place, owned by the City of Mesa. The project will provide protection to local, previously-developed subdivisions, where historic flooding has been noted.


A design concept report has been completed by the District. This effort accomplished an update to the Spookhill ADMP for the subject project. Final design and construction schedules will be driven by City funding authorization under a future City bond.
