[ARCHIVED] County Flood Control District Hosts Additional Virtual Meeting to Provide Updated Flood Risk

The Flood Control district is hosting a virtual meeting tonight, Wednesday, June 29 at 6: 30 p.m. to provide the Schultz/Pipeline Flood Area (Timberline, Wupatki Trails, Fernwood, and Doney Park neighborhoods) with the updated flood risk modeling results and to review the flood mitigation efforts underway. 

First and foremost, the District’s hydrology consultant, J.E. Fuller Hydrology will be sharing the most recent updates to the flood risk maps based upon the burn severity map produced by the Burned Area Emergency Response team. The flood risk maps show the watersheds most affected by the Pipeline Fire and show the depth of flooding expected in the downstream neighborhoods. The flooding is expected to be severe and repetitive in many of the areas.

Presenters will also reiterate the District’s ongoing flood mitigation efforts in neighborhoods that now find themselves facing potentially damaging and hazardous conditions. The District will review exhibits indicating the Recommended Mitigation Measures for individual properties identified by engineers as being at-risk, as well as provide resources for property owners to begin their own mitigation efforts and secure flood insurance. The Recommended Mitigation Exhibits are available to the public via the District’s website: https://www.coconino.az.gov/2926/SchultzPipeline-Flood-Area 

This virtual meeting will be streamed live via the Zoom teleconferencing platform, residents are encouraged to participate via this link: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83988772213 

The meeting will also be available at the District’s website after the meeting for viewing. If the public has questions, then please email those to the District at pipelinefirefloodarea@coconino.az.gov

 

The Coconino County Flood Control District is charged with reducing the risk of flood loss, minimizing the impact of floods on human safety, health, and welfare, and restoring and preserving the natural and beneficial values served by floodplains.
