Drainage and Flooding
There are numerous washes, riverbeds and three 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.
