Coconino County Flood Report Says There Won’t Be Increased Flooding In Doney Park From The Museum Fire At This Time

Coconino County Flood Control officials say there will not be increased flooding on the Burris Watershed due to the Museum Fire at this time. The statement comes from a flood analysis that was conducted by the county. The Burris Watershed is contained in the western Doney Park neighborhoods. These areas include North Peaks and Burris Lane along Highway 89, east and north of Flagstaff. The report shows the Museum Fire has burned into a small area previously burned by the 1977 Radio Fire. Results show the watershed was minimally affected, and with current fire conditions, there will not be any flood impact to the communities in the watershed as a result of the Museum Fire at this time. Any rain event that would have produced flooding prior to the fire would produce the same level of flooding after the fire. A public meeting will be held tonight at Cromer Elementary School at 6:30 p.m. The school is located on Silver Saddle Road.
