The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management is allocating $27-million in relief money to the City of Flagstaff and Coconino County for post-fire mitigation efforts. Last month, the department received two assistance requests from the City of Flagstaff and Coconino County Flood Control District to address separate projects. The first request for $16.1 million, helps repair Flagstaff’s Inner Basin water pipeline along with Waterline and Schultz Pass Roads, which suffered catastrophic damage due to flooding after the Pipeline Fire. The Coconino County Flood Control District requested approximately $10.9 million to match funding already provided by the federal Natural Resources Conservation Service. The department’s match funding leverages almost $50 million in federal funding for neighborhood-related flood mitigation work stemming from multiple wildfires, including the Schultz and Pipeline Fires.
