District: 1 - Denny Barney

In conjunction with the towns of Gilbert and Queen Creek, the District designed a multi-use conveyance channel capable of containing a 100-year storm event within the existing natural alignment of the Sonoqui Wash from Queen Creek Wash (at Higley Road) to Chandler Heights Road. The channel is approximately 3.5 miles long and about 140 feet to 200 feet in width; it reduces and conveys the previous one-half-mile to three-quarter-mile floodplain. Most of the land required for this channel was dedicated by the adjacent developers. The project incorporated the construction of five major crossings, including bridges at Higley Road and Power Road constructed by the Town of Gilbert and Maricopa County Department of Transportation, respectively.


Construction is complete. The towns of Gilbert and Queen Creek own and maintain the channel.
