Santa Cruz River ruled navigable; may limit development

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has ruled the Santa Cruz is “navigable,” meaning all tributaries and drainages to tributaries may be regulated under the Clean Water Act.

Opponents of the Rosemont copper mine argue that Davidson Canyon is included as a feeder stream to tributary of a navigable stream, making it more difficult for Rosemont to put mine waste there.
