Drainage and Flooding

There are numerous washes, riverbeds and 3 floodplains within the City of Apache Junction. The City will get periodic and seasonal rains. When it rains these normally dry waterways can be destructive and even life-threatening events. City residents can do their own part to protect themselves and their property from the stormwater and during a flood event. The City encourages all residents to:
  • Stay out of flooded areas.
  • 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, and purchase flood insurance for their property.
Recently the City has passed and adopted the Floodplain Management and Stormwater Regulations to protect residents and the motoring public.
