Phase: Planning & Studies

The purpose of the Ahwatukee Foothills Area Drainage Master Study/Plan is to identify known and potential flooding hazards in the Ahwatukee area. The study, which is a joint effort between the Flood Control District of Maricopa County and the city of Phoenix, covers approximately 39 square miles, roughly bounded by South Mountain to the north and west, Interstate-10 to the east and Pecos Road to the south.

The study will be divided into two phases. In the first phase, study team members will identify flooding problems and develop hydrology for the area. The second phase may be conducted to recommend structural methods such as channels and basins, or non-structural methods such as development codes, to help reduce and manage flooding in areas identified with particular flooding concerns. Ultimately, the results will be used to help the District and Phoenix make more informed decisions on future land development, and help guide local developers and property owners in building more safely. This will reduce potential damage to property and loss of life from drainage issues and stormwater flooding.

The updated two-dimensional analysis is complete for the area. Results are available through the FCD Library or by contacting the Project Manager.

Concept mitigation measures have been developed for a number of the identified areas. Concept plans can be found in the final Area Drainage Master Plan report in the FCD Library.

The Community Working Group (CWG) has met numerous times. The District presented the modeling results and obtained feedback from the CWG members.

The District has presented the modeling results to some of the homeowners associations. Contact the project manager if your HOA would like a presentation.

The September 8, 2014 storm is documented in a report for this area.
