The Laveen Area Drainage Master Plan Update (ADMPU) will re-examine the recommended drainage elements from the original Laveen Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) which was completed in 2002. The study will also identify and analyze any new flooding problems in specific areas that suffered damage during the major storms of August and September 2014. The focus area (shown on the figure in yellow) being evaluated is from 43rd Avenue to 55th Avenue and from Dobbins Road to Estrella Road. A separate study, the South Phoenix/Laveen Drainage Improvement Project Supplement, is also being evaluated for the area from 35th Avenue to 7th Avenue and from Baseline Road to South Mountain Park.
Purpose and Goal
The original Laveen ADMP identified a recommended plan (shown on figure) which included constructing several detention basins and a storm drain system to decrease flooding hazards and to carry stormwater to the Laveen Area Conveyance Channel. The original study area was generally bounded by Salt River to the north, 43rd Avenue on the east, South Mountain to the south and the Gila River Indian Community on the west.
The goal of the Laveen ADMPU is to identify any additional flooding problems that stemmed from 2014 storms and not identified in the original study , and to re-examine the recommended alternative.
The District will be working closely with City of Phoenix and other governmental agencies. The District is the lead agency and will manage the preparation of the final study documents.
Preparation of the Laveen ADMPU commenced in December 2014 and is anticipated to be completed by summer of 2018.
