PHOTO: Just 10 days shy of a year since a tropical storm remnant inundated the ball fields at Golden Eagle Park in 2018, it happened again on Monday morning this week. More than two inches of rain fell in the center of Fountain Hills over a three-hour period beginning around 6 a.m. on Sept. 23. Water rushing down washes flowed again up to the dam in Golden Eagle Park where it backed up. Ball fields that had to be restored after last year’s flooding were once again under water, as much as three to four feet along the outfield fences closest to the dam. By about 5 p.m. much of the water had drained out and there appeared to be little debris, but there was no damage assessment. More rain late Monday dumped an additional inch or more of rain on the wash watershed.
