The Coconino County Flood Control District (District) is hosting a series of flood corridor meetings to discuss conceptual long-term flood mitigation for each of the flood corridors in the Schultz/Pipeline Flood Area.
The goal for these corridor meetings is to begin sharing of information regarding each specific flood corridor so that property owners in each corridor have a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges for long-term flood mitigation.
The District and its engineering consultants are continuing to prepare conceptual plans for long-term flood mitigation. Long-term flood mitigation involves three key, interdependent elements:
- On-forest watershed restoration measures to restore alluvial fans and provide erosion control
- Flood mitigation within the neighborhoods
- Increasing drainage infrastructure capacity at Highway 89
