The South Phoenix/Laveen Drainage Improvement Project Feasibility Study evaluated the watershed generally bounded by 43rd Avenue to the west, 16th Street to the east, South Mountain to the south and the Salt River to the north. The study identified and compared alternative solutions to mitigate flooding hazards in the watershed and selected a recommended plan. Plan elements included several stormwater detention basins and a storm drain system to carry stormwater to the Salt River. These projects are being completed in partnership with the city of Phoenix.
The South Phoenix Two Basins Project includes a regional stormwater detention basin located in the northeast corner of the intersection of 27th Avenue and South Mountain Avenue. The basin will discharge to the previously constructed storm drain system in Baseline Road and, combined with collective plan features, will further mitigate flooding hazards in the subject area with a goal of overall flood protection up to the 100-year rainfall event (one percent chance of occurring in a given year). The South Phoenix Two Basins Project also includes a regional stormwater detention basin located in the northeast corner of the intersection of 43rd Avenue and Baseline Road.
The project design was completed in 2013. The project construction contract began November 16, 2015, with the City of Phoenix as the lead partner. Completion is expected by 10-31-2016.
