The record-setting flood that scoured Sabino Canyon
on July 31, 1993, ripped out a section of the canyon
road, destroyed the final shuttle stop and left other
parts of the canyon strewn with boulders and debris.
At its highest volume, the massive flood measured 17,000 cubic feet per second.
In August 2006, major flooding once again hit the Sabino Canyon/Tucson area. Water in the normally DRY Rillito Wash was flowing at an estimated 35,000 cubic feet per second. A house fell into the Santa Cruz River, and the entire town of Marana was evacuated. Following the flooding, the bridge that crossed Rattlesnake Creek along the Sabino Canyon Road ... was missing!
