Phase: Floodplain Delineation
Description:

The Desert Lake Wash, Carefree Highway to Cloud Road Floodplain Delineation Study is a restudy of a section of Desert Lake Wash to update the study based on newer mapping.  This study is being conducted by the Flood Control District of Maricopa County, and will analyze approximately 6860 linear feet of floodplain.  The study is bounded by the State Land parcel at East Cloud Road to the North, East Carefree Highway to the South, North 3rd Avenue on the West and North 9th Street on the East (See study Map area).  The area is mainly R-43 residential with a small portion on C-2 Commercial.

 

In the Desert Lake Wash, Carefree Highway to Cloud Road Floodplain Delineation Study area there are approximately 80 parcels that may be impacted.

 

The purpose of the Desert Lake Wash, Carefree Highway to Cloud Road Floodplain Delineation Study is to increase the accuracy of the floodplain and floodway delineations due to some apparent errors in the previous topography.

 

Desert Lake Wash will be modeled using the Army Corps of Engineer’s HEC-RAS model using updated topography for the area.  The final product of the models will be a new delineation of the floodplain, floodway, and updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps. 

Status:

The study was stared in October 2017. The study is progressing with the review of hydrologic studies and preparation of the hydraulic model.
