Yavapai County Flood Control District

Protecting and preserving our natural floodplains, such as Oak CreekBeaver CreekAgua Fria,and the Verde River, play an important role in our community.

  • Flood waters allowed to spread over a large area reduce flood peak velocities, thus reducing property damage.
  • Vegetation stabilizes soils during flooding.
  • Floodplains act as recharge areas for groundwater, and filtering impurities from runoff.
  • Floodplains provide a healthy habitat for wildlife and an attractive open space in a neighborhood.

Keep our floodplains open and clean.

Never dump waste, trash or place unauthorized fill in a drainage way or floodplain.
