River Summary: The Salt River is a tributary of the Gila River that runs through Arizona. It has a total length of 200 miles and originates in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona. The river flows through several reservoirs and dams such as Roosevelt, Apache, and Canyon Lakes. The construction of these dams has provided hydroelectric power and water resources for irrigation, flood control, and recreation purposes. The Salt River Project manages the water resources of the river and provides electricity to millions of people in central Arizona. The river has played an important role in the history and development of the Phoenix metropolitan area. Today, it is a popular destination for outdoor recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and hiking. Additionally, the river is used for agricultural purposes such as providing water for crops and grazing land.
