Earlier studies conducted by the District identified a recommended plan which included constructing several detention basins and a storm drain system to decrease flooding hazards and to carry stormwater to the Salt River . Previous study areas were generally bounded by 43rd Avenue to the west, 16th Street to the east, South Mountain Park to the south and the Salt River to the north. The South Phoenix/Laveen Drainage Improvement Project Supplement will expand upon the recommended plan.


The South Phoenix/Laveen Drainage Improvement Project Supplement will examine the expansion of the drainage facilities identified in previous studies to further mitigate flooding in specific areas that suffered damage during the major storms of August and September 2014. The general area being evaluated is from 35th Avenue to 7th Avenue and from Baseline Road to South Mountain Park.
