River Restoration

Taking the lead to secure water for the Santa Cruz River

If we had a flowing river near Tucson, wouldn’t you want to make sure it stayed that way? We would! Tucson actually has a little-known gem like this.

The water is cleaned and released into the river channel from two water treatment facilities near Roger and Ina Roads.
