dc.descriptionIn flowing from its origins in the mountains of west-central New Mexico down to the broad sedimentary basins of central Arizona's Salt River Valley, the Gila River and its enclosing fluvial deposits are tightly enclosed by strongly-consolidated, low-permeability rock. An exception is the broad and deep expanse of sedimentary deposits crossed by the Gila River in the Safford-San Carlos area of east-central Arizona. An interconnected chain or complex of geologic structural subbasins in this area is filled with thousands of feet of weakly- to moderately-consolidated sedimentary deposits. These sedimentary deposits have the potential for storing and transmitting much more water than the strongly-consolidated rock of surrounding mountain ranges. This chain of structural subbasins will collectively be called the Safford-San Carlos Area Subbasin Complex in this report.In flowing from its origins in the mountains of west-central New Mexico down to the broad sedimentary basins of central Arizona's Salt River Valley, the Gila River and its enclosing fluvial deposits are tightly enclosed by strongly-consolidated, low-permeability rock.
