Wickenburg Area Drainage Master Study/Plan
Hosking Ryan Consultants performed an Area Drainage Master Study that revised 100 linear miles of existing FEMA floodplain delineations of tributary watercourses to the Hassayampa River and Sols Wash within the Town of Wickenburg and surrounding area. The survey tasks associated with the project include: establishment of a high accuracy control network, photogrammetric surveying, conventional and digital leveling, static and real time kinematic GPS surveying, 3D drainage structure surveys, and the preparation of FEMA elevation certificates for multiple existing commercial and residential structures. Pending FEMA LOMR approval, several existing home structures will be removed from the 100-year floodplain, resulting in lower insurance costs for residents.
Project Requirements / Unique Characteristics:
- 100 Linear Miles Revised Floodplain Delineations
- FEMA Elevation Certificates
- Lower Insurance Costs for Residents
