Welcome to the Eastern Sandoval County Arroyo Flood Control Authority (ESCAFCA)
As communities around the state have grown, flood control authorities have been been put into place to control growth and protect the environment from flooding and damage. The first community to approve a flood control authority was Albuquerque in 1963, followed by Las Cruces in 1967 and Southern Sandoval County in 1991. As Eastern Sandoval County (Placitas, Bernalillo and Algodones) has grown, it became necessary to create the Eastern Sandoval County Flood Control Authority (ESCAFCA), which was approved by the New Mexico State Legislature in 2007.
In November 2008, voters approved a bond issue that provides funding to build watershed management and aquifer recharge facilities. ESCAFCA will build multi-use projects that also will create open space areas — to maximize the use of the land.
