Due to the anticipated rapid development within the Northwest Phoenix Valley, the FCDMC proactively sought solutions to provide adequate drainage infrastructure in the area.

Entellus was asked to develop a study and plan which included hydrology updates, collection of relevant information, alternatives, and 15% plans. Our team also performed a hydrologic analysis for the entire watershed to consider drainage, environmental, and cultural conditions. The final plan included a network of drainage facilities that combined natural and man-made infrastructure to enhance the conveyance capacity and minimize negative impacts to the area.
