Abstract: The Flood Control District of Maricopa County, Arizona, is the floodplain and stormwater management agency for the most densely populated county in the State. A major new tool being used by the District is a program of Area Drainage Master Studies (ADMSs). Each ADMS uses an approach individually tailored to a specific watershed and produces a unique Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP). Each ADMP includes a surface conveyance configuration together with development policies and standards to be applied to that specific watershed. Each ADMP, when adopted, will have the effect of regulation, and all new development will conform to it.
