DescriptionThe New River SE 7.S-minute Quadrangle is located in the northern fringe of the Phoenix metropolitan area and is bordered by Biscuit Flat to the west, the Union Hills to the south, Paradise Valley to the southeast, and the New River and New River Mesa areas to the north (Figure 1). The quadrangle is bounded by latitudes 33°4S'00"N and 33°S2'30''N, and longitudes 112°00'00"W and 1 12°07'30"W. Given its location, the area has become highly urbanized during the last few decades and is still undergoing rapid population growth. Thus, the knowledge of the distribution and character of bedrock and surficial deposits is important to make informed decisions concerning management of the land and its resources. Map includes three cross-sections.
