Fans 5 & 6 Redelineation Study:
One conclusion from the PPW ADMS was that the floodplains known as Fans 5 & 6 should be remapped to better depict the current flood hazards. The Flood Control District developed new floodplain maps for Fans 5 & 6, which were shared with the affected property owners at two open houses in September 2016. As a result of the public outreach, the Flood control District received new technical information from several property owners that will be incorporated into the floodplain study. After these changes are incorporated, the Flood Control District is expected to submit the proposed floodplain maps to FEMA for their review in the winter 2017.
Rawhide Wash Flood Hazard Mitigation Study:
During the summer 2016, the Flood Control District met with the City of Phoenix, City of Scottsdale, and other stakeholders to discuss the alternatives, preliminary cost estimates, and expected benefits if the project was implemented. Based on these discussions, the Flood Control District will conduct further evaluation on the costs and benefits of the alternatives, continue with stakeholder discussions, and will meet with several HOAs along Rawhide Wash in 2017. If a project moves forward, more public outreach, such as a public meeting, is anticipated.
