Interior or Exterior Flood Damage
If you have experienced flooding on the interior and/or exterior of your home, please call 928-213-2102 to report the damage. While the City is not able to provide financial compensation for restoration or repairs, it is important to track damage costs so that the data can be reported to the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs. All information collected is kept confidential.
Pipeline West Flood Risk Assessment Map
The Coconino County Flood Control District has created a flood risk assessment map that is designed to show the areas that could be impacted by potential post-wildfire flooding on the west side of Flagstaff from the Pipeline Fire. It is important to note that this map is preliminary and is subject to revision.
The map models potential water flows after a rain event in which 2" of precipitation falls on the Pipeline burn area over a period of 45 minutes. Such a storm has a 25-Year recurrence interval probability. This does not mean that such a storm only occurs every 25 years. Instead, a 25-Year Event is one that statistically has a 4% probability of occurring in any given time. The Post-Fire Flood Risk Assessment Map has been prepared utilizing the best available data. However, unpredictable changes may occur in the flow patterns and channels as watershed conditions constantly change due to levels of saturation, debris, sediment impacts, and other factors. As such, it is very important to note that these changes could impact the modeling results used to prepare the Assessment Map.
Self-Fill Sandbag Stations
The City of Flagstaff has established two self-filling sandbag stations for those impacted by the Pipeline Fire who live on the west side of Flagstaff. They are located in the following locations:
Thorpe Park (parking lot between Frances Short Pond and the Softball Fields)
950 N Aztec St
Flagstaff, AZ 86001
Schultz Creek Trailhead (commonly called the Schultz “Y”).
Schultz Pass Rd and E Mt Elden Lookout Rd
Preliminary flood hazard modeling of areas impacted by the Pipeline Fire indicates an increased risk of flooding for some neighborhoods within Flagstaff City limits. Homeowners' insurance policies do not cover flood damage and coverage must be purchased separately. Individuals interested in learning if they may be affected can view a map of Flagstaff neighborhoods or can visit the FEMA Flood Map Service Center to view floodplain designations by address. More information can be found on the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program website.
