Project Description:

The Flood Control District is in the process of rehabilitating Buckeye Flood Retarding Structure No. 1. It is one of three structures north of Interstate 10 and south of the White Tank Mountains. The earth-filled dam detains floodwater and conveys it to the Hassyampa River. The structure is 7.1 miles in length and has a height of 26 feet, with a storage capacity of 6,345 acre-feet.  Built in the 1970s, the dam rehabilitation will extend the life of the structure and ensure it continues to protect downstream property owners from flooding.

The project includes raising the dam height from 2.5 to 3 feet on the eastern end, reinforcing the auxiliary spillway, installing a central filter and a concrete riser for the principal spillway and constructing new ramps and maintenance roads.

This project is complex and has been separated into phases.

The rehabilitation of Buckeye FRS No. 1 is accomplished after the completion of Phase 2B on February 24, 2024.
