The Flood Control District is dedicated to educating the residents of Maricopa County about the hazards of flooding and to inform them of District flood control projects in their communities. Our goal is to ensure that County citizens have access to the latest floodplain, project and permit information.

Floods are destructive, life-threatening events. County residents can do their part to protect themselves, their family and their property during a flood event.

The District encourages all residents to:
  • Purchase flood insurance for their property.
  • Stay informed and provide input on flood control projects and studies in your community.
  • Follow safety guidelines during storms and floods, especially when near flooded washes and riverbeds.
  • Adhere to regulations when building or maintaining property in a floodplain.
