The Amole Dam outfall pipe is currently controlled by a manually operated gate valve that must be coordinated with the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District to release detained stormwater into the Arenal Main Canal to avoid flooding or overtopping the canal.

As part of the Corps of Engineers Southwest Valley Flood Reduction Project, this project will complete the gravity outfall from the Amole dam through Navajo Elementary School and tie into the Isleta Drain.

The project will also provide Navajo Elementary School with a conduit for its stormwater and remove floodplain on the school property and surrounding neighborhood. The completion of this project will provide additional capacity in the dam for runoff from upstream development.
