Commentary: Verde River: Time to collaborate and act

The Verde River is an ecological, recreational, aesthetic and economic treasure for the citizens of the Verde Valley and the State of Arizona. It flows year-round and nearly continuously from its headwaters near Paulden for about 190 miles to its confluence with the Salt River near Mesa. Although the Verde River's year-round flow may seem secure, it is, in fact, vulnerable.
