WASHINGTON — A bill passed by the House Wednesday could expedite flood control measures along the Lower Santa Cruz River in Pinal County and in the city of Maricopa.

The House passed the Water Resources Development Act of 2020, a bipartisan package authorizing water infrastructure projects and studies through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The bill authorizes expediting completion of a flood study for the Lower Santa Cruz River. The basin, which includes parts of Pinal County, the city of Maricopa and the Gila River Indian Community, is one of the fastest growing regions in Arizona.
