The District initiated the Fountain Hills Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) in partnership with the Town of Fountain Hills in 1996. The ADMP had four goals: (1) delineate a floodplain for about 1,800 feet of Laser Drain, extending from its confluence with Cereus Wash upstream to Technology Drive; (2) perform a roadway crossing drainage study, including preliminary design of alternative crossing structures, for 26 locations that failed to meet standards; (3) perform an emergency route access evaluation for 100-year flood conditions (one-percent chance of occurring in a given year); and (4) perform engineering studies of Golden Eagle Park Dam to identify the preferred solution for the principal spillway and emergency spillway inadequacies at the dam. The dam is owned and operated by the Town of Fountain Hills and the Fountain Hills School District, and included an uncontrolled principal spillway, threatening the Fountain Hills High School and downstream properties.


The study was completed in 1997. The rehabilitation of Golden Eagle Park Dam, the primary structural recommendation of the ADMP, has been accomplished.
