The Flood Control District of Maricopa County (District) was formed 60 years ago to address flooding throughout the county. Even though Maricopa County is in a desert, floods occur due to the unique character of the desert and two distinct rainy seasons – the summer monsoon and winter frontal rains. Although the District has made great progress over the years, work remains to be done as the county continues to be one of the fastest-growing in the United States. As the District strives to stay ahead of development, it opens new opportunities. As the District moves forward it focuses on water conservation/multi-purpose facilities and new tools and flood education to accomplish its mission.
