If you are a resident living in the Doce Fire or Yarnell Hill Fire area and are concerned about potential flooding, you may request a fire-specific Flood Hazard Request from the Yavapai County Flood Control District. We will be processing these requests daily. Please send an email to FireFlood.Hazard@yavapai.us and include parcel number or tax assessor number (APN), the requester information including name, mailing address, phone number, comments or special requests, and a return email address (if different than originating address).
Did you know that your home may be at a greater risk of flooding as a result of the Doce Fire? Visit our Post-Fire Flood Potential page for more information.
The National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) is a voluntary incentive program in which communities are rewarded for floodplain management activities. The program provides opportunity for discounted flood insurance premiums for policyholders in communities that participate. Communities are issued a class rating dependent upon the number of points earned through various participatory programs.
Yavapai County recently increased to a Class 6 CRS rating! This means a benefit of up to a 25% discount for policyholders within the Special Flood Hazard Area! Call your insurance agent to find out about possible discounts on your flood insurance!
This project will remove pollutants from stormwater runoff and has also constructed groundwater recharge basins for infiltrations into the Prescott Aquifer. Read more…

The Legislature of the State of Arizona delegated responsibility to each county flood control district to adopt regulations designed to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare of its citizenry. The Yavapai County Flood Control District was created, and the initial floodplain regulations were adopted by the District Board of Directors in December 1981. The regulations and requirements of the District’s
Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance are intended to minimize public and private losses
due to flood conditions. The Yavapai County Drainage Criteria Manual was first adopted
by Resolution 1151 in November 1998. The information in this manual is used for preparing hydrologic, hydraulic and drainage related reports required by Yavapai County.
