    These parcels were purchased under the Floodprone Land Acquisition Program.  This program enables purchase of floodprone properties to protect public safety and preserve natural floodplain characteristics. In this case fee title ownership was acquired.     No restoration or management plans have been developed, however as an upstream site in a rural area, the acquisition preserves natural over bank flood storage and natural floodplain characteristics to minimize potential downstream flooding and protect riparian areas.  Closure of the gravel pits will enable restoration of natural sedimentation and flow characteristics.

    This is a cost-effective strategy to remove people and property from exposure to flood hazards and loss of life, as well as property damage.  Preservation of flood water storage capacity in floodplains minimizes future flood damages, reduces the need for structural flood and erosion protection, facilitates groundwater recharge, creates passive-use recreational opportunities, maintains urban open space corridors, and preserves and enhances riparian habitat and corridors of natural biological diversity.  This program complements the goals of the Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan to preserve riparian areas.
