Sunnycove Flood Retarding Structure (FRS) is an earthen dam that collects stormwater from Sunnycove Wash and conveys it to the Hassayampa River via the 30-inch Sunset/Sunnycove Pipeline. The structure is 714 linear feet in length with a height of 48.5 feet with no permanent storage capacity. The emergency spillway is a 100-foot wide earthen channel located on the north side of the dam. This structure works in conjunction with the Sunset FRS. The dam was constructed with sponsorship from the U.S. Soil Conservation Service, now the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). The District and the U.S. Soil Conservation Service were cost share partners on this project.
