WINSLOW, Ariz. - Little Colorado River flood control was the topic of discussion May 31 at the Chamber of Commerce Hubbell building during a conference focused on regional flood control. Attendees included Winslow city staff, Navajo County representatives, flood control officers, U.S. Army Engineer Corps and other interested parties. Approximately 30 people attended.
The reason for the conference was to determine where the priority areas in Navajo County are, which need upgraded flood protection along the Little Colorado River. Hand in hand with prioritization is the issue of cost, since unlimited funds are not going to be forthcoming. The participants were divided into six groups, each group tackling a different facet of the project. In addition there was a field trip taking the conferees out to see the specifics of problem areas close to the town of Winslow. In general it was determined to consider protection of the Winslow city priority number one and protecting the less dense areas of Navajo County as priority number two on the scale of two.
In July the group will reconvene and make farther recommendations of a more specific nature and probably will include a timeline for action and milestones.
