Alaska

Delta Clearwater Watershed Project

This project is to provide flood prevention to remediate a failed watershed project site which is exacerbating the resource conditions it was originally intended to prevent and is creating safety risks to area users.

X

   

Arkansas

Big Slough Watershed

This project is to provide flood prevention by reducing floodwater damages to the intensified agricultural area, residential, business, and infrastructure and prevent sediment loading in Big Slough Drainage Ditch and its major tributaries.

X

   

Arkansas

Departee Creek Watershed

The project aims to alleviate flooding of cropland and grazing lands as well as improve wildlife habitat and water quality. The watershed has historically suffered from flooding, and a combination of water control structures and conservation easements, this project aims to reduce risk of flooding. Water control structures would include a floodwater retarding structure.

Arizona

Coyote Wash Urban Enhanced Runoff Recharge Project

This project aims to conserve water in this wash, which is part of the San Pedro River basin. Water declines are a concern, and this project aims to prevent flooding, improve riparian habitat for wildlife, and enable better use of water on agricultural lands.

X

   

Arizona

Gila Valley Flood Protection and Watershed Improvement

This watershed project will provide the framework for the Gila Valley Flood Protection and Watershed Improvement Project to enact flood mitigation measures, update structures and install infrastructure to manage storm water runoff which will reduce flooding, erosion and sedimentation issues. Population growth in our rural area has shifted drainage patterns. Current infrastructure has either become inadequate or new infrastructure is needed.

   

X

Arizona

Greene Wash Watershed

The project is to implement measures to address flooding, erosion, water quality, and sedimentation.  The purposes of the plan are to identify and provide conceptual solutions for watershed protection, flood mitigation, water quality improvements, soil erosion reduction, sediment control, and wildlife enhancement. The plan will focus on proper land use and conservation practices, developed by interdisciplinary teams of technical specialists. Groundwater recharge opportunities will be studied.

Arizona

Greenlee County Watershed

This project will eventually rehabilitate and modfiy drainage structures and implementing infiltration or detention systems to slow runoff, which provide water for riparian and upland fish and game habitat and for livestock, which reduce damage from high flows having caused millions of dollars to personal and public property resulting in expensive infrastructure repairs, disrupting transportation systems, and causing water quality impairment.

   

X

Arizona

Middle Magma Watershed Flood Control Project

This project will prevent damage from floodwater and erosion through the design and implementation of flood prevention measures and sound flood risk management planning. In specific, the project seeks to complete the system envisioned by NRCS with the 1960’s watershed work plan by addressing several known flooding issues within the Middle Magma reach. One is located upstream of the CAP Canal overchute, where historic flanking of the training dike causes water to breach the CAP Canal and flood adjacent agricultural lands. In a second location, the residential communities of Crestfield Manor and Wild Horse Estates have under-designed drainage facilities that become quickly overwhelmed with floodwaters, causing damage to residential properties and structures in the area.

   

X

Arizona

Pinal County - Guild Wash Watershed

This project will develop a plan and actions to mitigate soil erosion, flooding, and sedimentation. The purposes for the action are as follows: watershed protection, flood mitigation, groundwater recharge, water quality improvements, soil erosion reduction, sediment control, and habitat/wildlife enhancement. The needs are the ongoing losses and ecological implications of not implementing the action to achieve the purpose.
