Protecting and preserving our natural floodplains, such as Oak Creek, Beaver Creek, Agua Fria,and the Verde River, play an important role in our community.
- Flood waters allowed to spread over a large area reduce flood peak velocities, thus reducing property damage.
- Vegetation stabilizes soils during flooding.
- Floodplains act as recharge areas for groundwater, and filtering impurities from runoff.
- Floodplains provide a healthy habitat for wildlife and an attractive open space in a neighborhood.
Keep our floodplains open and clean.
Never dump waste, trash or place unauthorized fill in a drainage way or floodplain.
