This report presents the results of both a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the drainage problems associated with the South Branch, Upper Carmack watershed. Also included is an economic assessment of the damage potential associated with three distinct storm events.
Phase IIA focuses on identifying alternatives for mitigating the hazards and problems, evaluating the alternatives for flood mitigation potential and cost effectiveness, and recommending a preferred alternative and flood control policy.
This plan has focused on two program areas: 1) floodplain management through revised floodplain delineations and assessment of subsequent FEMA mapping revisions; and 2) basin-wide planning issues involving both short- and long-term drainage infrastructure and regulatory needs.
The purpose of this study is to (1) develop a fundamental understanding of the problems that exist, and (2) perform a cursory examination of possible management approaches identifying those that appear most plausible for further consideration.
The study developed the 100-year floodplain limits within the watershed and identified the area between Westover Avenue and Valencia Road as a major flood hazard area affecting most of the properties along the channel.
The purpose of this study, which represents Phase I, is to determine long range planning and land use policies for flood control and floodplain management in the southwest area.
This study identifies the drainage and flooding hazards within the watershed and develops alternatives to address those hazards. It is a comprehensive study that estimates flood and erosion potential, maps watercourses, identifies existing and potential problems and develops preliminary solutions and standards for sound floodplain and stormwater management.
The purpose of Phase I of the Riverside Terrace Basin management plan is the assessment of the existing hydrologic and basic hydraulic properties of the watershed.
The purpose of this study is to develop a basin management plan for Highlands Wash and the two washes west of Highlands Wash.
Provides basic information about the source of surface water in Cienega Creek at the downstream end of the natural preserve, which will contribute to efforts to conceptualize and implement effective land management proposals for the SDCP. Study results indicate that the surface flow or subflow from Agua Verde Creek do not significantly influence the water in the Cienega Creek.
The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.
The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog and Library One Search. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.
Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
