FEMA Flood Risk Report - 2016


FEMA recently identified several Areas of Mitigation Interest within the corporate boundary of Apache Junction. FEMA recognizes that Apache Junction may not have the resources of larger surrounding communities, and thus wanted to aid Apache Junction in further defining flood risk potential and in developing a Floodplain Management Plan. A Floodplain Management Plan will allow Apache Junction to better understand their flood risk and to make floodplain management decisions that consider all possible mitigation alternatives or the consequences of those alternatives.  The link below will take you to the “Apache Junction Flood Risk Report” prepared by FEMA.
