Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority - AMAFCA

Protecting Life and Property since 1963

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.

Note: The orange staining in the Embudo Channel below Eubank is the result of the rehabilitation of an Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority well. This portion of the channel is maintained by the City of Albuquerque.
