Not All Roads Are Created Equal: The Story Behind the Sacramento Wash

Arizona has been known for some pretty intense monsoons that can cause extensive damage to buildings and roads.  For those who live in Golden Shores, monsoons sometimes mean residents are blocked off from I-40 for at least 24 hours while Mohave County road crews work around the clock to remove deposited sediment and standing water on Oatman Highway. According to Supervisor Buster Johnson, being able to construct flood control improvements to the area is a lot easier said than done.  “In 1988, a 100-foot right-of-way section was turned over to Mohave County by the State of Arizona.  That is currently the only section of the Sacramento Wash that is owned by the county,” Johnson explained.  “The adjacent upstream and downstream of Sacramento Wash is owned and administrated by the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) under the control of the United States Department of Interior,” Johnson continued. The Sacramento Wash serves drainage basins from Topock, Yucca, and Golden Valley as far as 70 miles upstream from its point-of-discharge into the Topock Marsh.  According to Mohave County Public Works Director Steve Latoski, the Refuge has prohibited the county from entering and disturbing Refuge lands outside the county’s 100-foot right-of-way.  “The Refuge has taken a position that sediment must remain in place undisturbed until a representative from the Fort Mojave Indian or Colorado River Indian Tribes is present to inspect and clear sediment...

ROAD MAINTENANCE

Monsoon season is in full swing and weather can change suddenly, sometimes resulting in sudden or unexpected flooding. Mohave County Public Works urges drivers to be aware of weather conditions and forecasts. In instances where County-maintained roads and streets sustain damage from monsoon weather, road maintenance crews will prioritize the repair, restoration, and cleanup of affected roads over some regularly scheduled maintenance activities. In the Arizona Strip, a blade will be working in the Lime Kiln Canyon area. In the Meadview area, crews will be involved with storm cleanup and repairs. If time allows, workers will be patching potholes and road edges as needed. In the Chloride/Dolan Springs area, storm cleanup will continue throughout the week. In the Kingman area, a blade will be active on Antares Rd. Off of I-40 the blade will be active in the Silver Springs area. In Golden Valley, the blades will be working together on storm cleanup and repairs throughout the area all week. In the Mohave Valley area, storm cleanup will focus on the Sacramento Wash crossings in the area from Topock to Golden Shores, and Silver Creek Rd. Near Yucca, a blade will be in the Mindy Mill area. In the Lake Havasu City area, Little Finger Culvert cleanout in Horizon 6 is continuing, as well as sweeping in Horizon 6. In the Wikieup area blading will take place on Bogles Ranch Rd.
