The Laveen Area Conveyance Channel Project improved the Maricopa Drain into a regional flood control facility capable of containing and conveying a 100-year flood event in the Laveen area from 43rd Avenue to the Salt River – a distance of approximately 5.8 miles. An associated flood detention basin at 43rd Avenue and Southern Avenue mitigates peak flood flows getting to the conveyance channel. The peak discharge at the outfall of the channel for the 100-year storm event is estimated to be 2,800 cubic feet per second.

The channel and basin are grass-lined, and a concrete low-flow channel carries tailwater to the Salt River. This project was constructed by a public-private partnership involving the Flood Control District, city of Phoenix, Maricopa County Department of Transportation and the Salt River Project.

The project is owned and maintained by the city of Phoenix.


The project was completed in 2009.
