Rio De Flag Flood Control Effort Awarded Federal Funds

The city of Flagstaff says $52 million was included in the Army Corps of Engineer’s FY 2020 work plan for the Rio de Flag Flood Control Project.

The project will remove more than half the residents out of the flood plain and according to a written news brief issued by the city it will also protect NAU and BNSF Railway from catastrophic flooding.

Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans says the work now begins, putting shovels in the ground and completing the project and she’s confident the project will spur additional economic growth in the city.
