The Southeast Valley Regional Drainage System (SEVRDS) provides a 100-year flood drainage system within the Loop 202 Santan Freeway corridor from Price Road to 56th Street. A connecting channel extends from the basins and wetland complex near Kyrene Road and Pecos Road to the Gila Drain Floodway west of Interstate 10. When combined with flows from the Price Freeway drainage system, municipal and freeway drainage is conveyed for 58 square miles from Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert and Maricopa County. Additionally the SEVRDS provides protection for areas of the Gila River Indian Community (GRIC) from flows originating outside the Community.

The SEVRDS was recommended in the Gilbert/Chandler Area Drainage Master Plan and was a cooperative effort between the District, Salt River Project (SRP), GRIC, the City of Chandler and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). In accordance with the IGA, the District was the lead on construction and construction management and was a cost share partner with Chandler and ADOT.
