The Flood Control District partners with metro cities and counties to design and construct flood control and warning measures, open space, regional paths, and remove trash and debris in our streams. The District runs on a $30 million annual budget with only 32 employees. Contracting out the work keeps overhead low, costs down, and ensures all the jobs stay local.
UDFCD was established by the Legislature and 1969 after the Metro area was hit by the devastating 1965 flood. The Flood Control District was launched with a mil levy set at 1.0 by statute. Today, as then, the District partners with seven counties and 33 municipalities on a 50/50 basis to design and construct flood control and warning measures, open space and regional paths, and provide debris removal.
