AMAFCA maintains its flood control system by removing sediment from areas where it accumulates. Many portions of the system are designed to capture sediment. AMAFCA also has many structures that trap trash and debris. These are designed to continue functioning even if they have some debris in them. AMAFCA also repairs the conctete channels and places rip rap in areas where erosion occurs. Maintenance is an ongoing process, so watch for us working out in the field.

Funding information will be posted soon!
