What is the Town of Paradise Valley Watershed Study?

In response to large storm events and resulting property damage from the September 8, 2014 and September 27, 2014, and the potential for future flooding, the Town of Paradise Valley is conducting an engineering study to identify local flood hazards and develop solutions to mitigate flood damage in Paradise Valley. This study is the first of three to be performed by the Town of Paradise Valley. This first study is specifically focusing on the Cheney and Cherokee watersheds. Future studies will focus on other watersheds in Paradise Valley.

This study is not a duplication of the Flood Control District of Maricopa County's Lower Indian Bend Wash Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) that began in 2012. This study will benefit from the data and analysis obtained from the ADMP to assist in the Town in solely developing solutions that will meet the needs of the Town of Paradise Valley.

How do I know if I live/own property in the Cheney watershed or Cherokee watershed?

The map on the next page illustrates the approximate boundaries of each watershed. The Cheney watershed generally includes the area south and east of the Mummy Mountain ridgeline, extending to Indian Bend Wash with Indian Bend Road serving as its southern boundary. The Cherokee watershed area generally includes the areas north and west of the Mummy Mountain ridgeline, west of Invergordon Road and extending west of Tatum Boulevard.

What is the purpose of this survey?

The purpose of this voluntary survey is to better understand:
  1. The type and frequency of flooding events experienced by property owners within the Cheney and Cherokee watersheds in Paradise Valley.
  2. The type and severity of property damage resulting from any flood event for property owners in the Cheney and Cherokee watersheds in Paradise Valley.
  3. Any observations, concerns or additional information regarding flooding events or hazards you would like the study team to be aware of.
Why is it important that I take a few minutes to complete this survey?

The Town of Paradise Valley would appreciate gaining insights from Town residents on their experiences with past storm water flooding and concerns about resulting damage to property or roadways in Paradise Valley.
