Southern Sandoval County Arroyo Flood Control Authority (SSCAFCA) is pleased to announce the completion of the Guadalajara Storm Drain Improvements, Phase 1A Project.

The project was officially completed in July of 2009 and is the first phase of a larger effort to provide flood protection for Rio Rancho residents within Unit 17 of Rio Rancho Estates.
