Watershed Studies

In response to recent storm events and their effect on town residents and resources, the Town Council has initiated a townwide stormwater study.  This engineering study involves a total of six watersheds over three years and will encompass the entire town.  It will document existing conditions within the town, identify possible solutions, consider possible funding sources, and prioritize future stormwater infrastructure improvements.  The first two watersheds include the Cherokee and Cheney area's of town (see map below).

This study is done in conjunction with the Flood Control District of Maricopa County's Lower and Middle Indian Bend Wash Area Drainage Master Plan.  The FCD's studies are analyzing data and solutions on a global scale while the Town's studies will utilize their data on a micro scale to develop town specific local solutions.  For more information regarding the FCD's studies, click here.

The Cheney Watershed Meeting #2 included a presentation on potential solutions to identified hazards.  

The town and it's consulting engineer, Dibble, have mapped the watershed, identified areas for potential improvements, and began scoping what those improvements might look like.  

The purpose of this meeting was to provide the public an opportunity to view the possible solutions and provide feedback.
