AZGS geologists are completing mapping of the Holocene deposits along the Verde River for the Arizona Dept. of Water Resources. In the picture at right, Dr. Mike Conway fords the river between Horseshoe and Bartlett reservoirs. [photo by Joe Cook]. Additional mapping is being done along tributaries.
The Arizona Dept. of Fish & Game assisted our field team getting around Bartlett reservoir in their pontoon boat.
The maps will be used by ADWR in adjudication hearings on rights for groundwater versus river subflow.
