Historic Cultural Resources in Relation to the Central Arizona Water Control Study (1983)

DOCUMENT [ID: 405570] Lyle M. Stone. James E. Ayres.

Major flooding also occurred along these rivers in December, 1978 and February, 1980. The recognition of this flooding problem, and of requirements for the regulatory storage of Central Arizona Project (CAP) water, prompted the U.S. Department of the Interior,...
