About the animas river
The Animas River is a tributary of the San Juan River, located in Colorado and New Mexico in the United States. The river stretches for approximately 126 miles, with a drainage area of around 3,100 square miles. Historically, the river was used for mining and transportation purposes. Today, the Animas River is primarily used for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and river rafting. However, the river has also been subject to contamination due to mining and agricultural runoff. Specific reservoirs and dams along the Animas River include the McPhee Reservoir and the Animas-La Plata project. These dams serve purposes such as irrigation and flood control. Despite the challenges facing the Animas River, efforts are being made to protect and restore this vital natural resource.
