Protecting wildlife part of Santa Cruz River construction project

The Pima County Regional Flood Control District relocated hundreds of reptiles, including a rarely seen species, as part of a wildlife salvage and rescue project along the Santa Cruz River.

This wildlife rescue effort took place ahead of a pair of flood control projects that are currently underway to remove excess sediment from the riverbed and to construct bank protections on the northern side of the Town of Marana’s 104-acre El Rio Open Space Preserve.

Pima County FAQs

Because it’s not every day you have to call a government office to settle a traffic citation or find out how you can speak at a Board of Supervisors' meeting, we’ve created this new section to highlight some of the most frequently asked questions received by our Pima County operator. In every issue of PCFYI, we’ll highlight a new set.

Do you have a question on a government office? E-mail us and we’ll include it in our next set of FAQs.
