If your house or property was flooded during a storm event you should contact the Pinal County Flood Control District. A representative will contact you and/or visit the site to review the cause of the flooding and can provide information on how to remediate the damage to the structure or property. District staff can also provide maps and additional resources that may help protect the property and structures from future flood events. In addition, repairs to the structure or alterations to the property may require a floodplain use permit.
Other than providing advice and information, the District is limited in the type of assistance that can be provided to residents. The Pinal County Flood Control District is prohibited from spending public money on private property. Pinal County can only expend resources on public infrastructure or on projects that result in benefits to the public. It is the responsibility of property owners to perform any necessary work on their own private properties. This may include non-county maintained roadways as well as private easements. However, assistance for storm or flood damage recovery may be available from various charitable or volunteer organizations. Please contact Pinal County Emergency Management at 520-866-6684 for more information on this.
Information regarding flood events is used to determine where funds should allocated for future improvements projects and where the floodplain maps may need to be updated.
