The Flood Control District of Maricopa County (District) coordinated with the cities of Scottsdale and Phoenix, and the Town of Paradise Valley to prepare a drainage master plan (DMP) for the Scottsdale Road Corridor. The purpose of the Scottsdale Road Corridor DMP was to identify the extent of flooding problems along the Scottsdale Road Corridor, and to provide solutions for flood protection and public safety for the residents and property owners in this area and for motorists on Scottsdale Road. This was accomplished by identifying conceptual flood control features and/or measures within the study area to reduce potential damages to property or loss of life from stormwater runoff. The focus of the study was the area that is subject to flooding along the 71st Street channel from Mountain View Road to Cactus Road, and along Scottsdale Road from Mountain View Road to Thunderbird Road.


The study was completed and the recommended plan adopted by the District's Board of Directors and by the Scottsdale City Council. All three of the recommended projects from the Scottsdale Road Drainage Corridor Master Plan within the City of Scottsdale have been completed. The District has turned over all three projects to the City for operation and maintenance. Recommended improvements to the Berneil Ditch within the Town of Paradise Valley are awaiting Town funding availability.
