Flood Control District (District) financial management primarily follows the requirements of Title 48 of the Arizona Revised Statutes and the District's financial policies resolution. Revenues and expenditures fall under three District funds, separating operational, grant and capital project funds.
A secondary tax on real property in Maricopa County serves as the District's primary funding source. Additional funding originates from intergovernmental cooperative agreements, excess land sales, data sales, permit charges and interest.
The District's Comprehensive Management Plan and Capital Improvement Program provide a fundamental framework for District spending. Expenditures most substantially relate to design, land acquisition, and construction for flood hazard mitigation capital projects; maintenance of existing District structures; planning studies; dam safety work; and floodplain delineation studies.
Revenue and expenditure data represented here are intended for general informational purposes and have been simplified to convey costs in a meaningful manner. Expenditures are categorized according to District Strategic Programs. Data is updated regularly.
