Rincon Creek

To provide comments on this watershed for consideration in the Floodplain Management Plan, contact Greg Saxe
Planning Manager
(520) 724-4633.
The Rincon Creek’s headwaters originate high in the Rincon Mountains near Rincon Peak over 8,000 feet above mean sea level and passes through Rincon Valley to its confluence with Pantano Wash. The presence of water and connectivity between the Rincon Mountains and Tucson Basin make the Rincon Valley a popular wildlife corridor. This watershed is comprised of 52,622 acres and contains 1,450 acres of SFHA, 742 acres of locally identified floodplain and 3,978 acres of Pima County Regulated Riparian Habitat.
