Santa Cruz River Case Statement


The Santa Cruz River, from Mexico to Marana, is a living, flowing river and the foundation of community health and prosperity. Sonoran Institute has over 25 years of experience working on the Santa Cruz River in the US and Mexico. The benefits of having steady effluent to restore the natural river ecosystem provide much needed community and economic benefits that are not secondary to environmental benefits—they are equally integral to our vision. Restoring the river as a source of community pride, connection, and as an economic asset will realize this effort’s “triple bottom line.”
