The Tres Rios Environmental Restoration Project is part of a collaborative effort between the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Multi-City Subregional Operating Group (comprised of Glendale, Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe). The main purpose of the project was to restore wetland and riparian habitat to the Salt River bottom. Arizona acreage of riparian habitat is a mere 0.4% of Arizona\\\'s total area, making this project vital to the ecosystem function as well as the wildlife that rely on these systems for a significant portion of their life-cycle. Another unique benefit of the wetlands is its ability to provide a superior level of natural treatment for secondary effluent water, avoiding expensive supplemental treatment technologies, which saved taxpayers an estimated $300,000,000. PLEASE NOTE: The site will be open to the public for field trips starting in late summer 2012.
