The City of Scottsdale, in partnership with the Flood Control District of Maricopa County, looked at current drainage conditions and changes within a large area of north Scottsdale.
- Forty-five square miles extending from Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard to Dynamite Boulevard and from Scottsdale Road into the McDowell Mountains.
- To conduct the first comprehensive area drainage study since 1993.
- Identify, quantify and document known and potential flooding hazards based on the impact of development in the area since 1993.
- Review the current FEMA floodplain delineations using updated rainfall data, more detailed topographic aerial mapping and the latest scientific computer modeling.
- Determine the need, based on the identified flooding hazards, for the future development of an area drainage master plan.
- Identify any public safety and property flood hazards and their risks using the best available technical data and methodologies combined with observations by residents, businesses and property owners.
- Determine any need to find solutions to minimize flood hazards in the future.
- Collaborate with area residents, property owners and stakeholders on identified flooding issues and development of potential solutions.
