Oro Valley named a wash after former Town Councilman KC Carter, an advocate of stormwater issues. 

Carter, who died April 14, 2012, served on the council from 2004 to 2010. He laid the groundwork for the town's storm-preparation infrastructure.

The town unveiled a plaque at a dedication ceremony Nov. 1 at the wash near Lambert Lane Bridge, south of West Lambert Lane.

“KC’s contributions to this community are still making a difference today, and will continue to do so well into the future," said Oro Valley Mayor Satish Hiremath, in a news release. "Oro Valley was the first municipality in the state of Arizona to approve dedicated financing for stormwater management, and Mr. Carter was a driving force behind that vision.”
