Abstract: The development of a flood control district and its associated capital improvement and regulatory programs does not by itself address drainage standards for a community. While the capital improvement and regulatory programs go a long way in solving existing flooding problems and minimizing future flooding problems, a common denominator is missing. This common denominator is drainage standards that are laid out in a drainage manual. Such a drainage manual covers all aspects of drainage planning including policy, design criteria, applicable laws, and guidelines for development of private and public stormwater management facilities. The preparation of a drainage manual in an arid region that is experiencing rapid growth warrants the inclusion of special features that attempt to address the concerns of all affected individuals.
