The Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority (AMAFCA) was created in 1963 by the New Mexico Legislature with specific responsibility for flooding problems in the greater Albuquerque area. 

AMAFCA’s purpose is to prevent injury or loss of life, and to eliminate or minimize property damage. AMAFCA does this by building and maintaining flood control structures which help alleviate flooding.

Remember that arroyos and ditches are dangerous places. For more information, click here.

Sandbags are available at City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County fire stations.
