File Geomorphology of the Upper Gila River Within the State of New Mexico
This investigation of the Upper Gila River Basin in New Mexico was conducted by Mussetter Engineering, Inc. for the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission (NMISC) to provide a basis for determining the geomorphic impacts on the Gila River, if any, due to annual diversion of up to 14,000 acre-feet (AF) of additional water as a result of implementation of the Consumptive Use and Forbearance Agreement (CUFA) in the 2004 Arizona Water Settlement Act. Geomorphic changes to the Gila River have the potential to adversely affect the physical habitat for a number of species listed under the Endangered Species Act, primarily, spikedace, loach minnow and the southwest willow flycatcher.
