Trump Administration Delays Border Wall at San Pedro River and Other Arizona Sites

I've got links to a couple of local articles here, Shar Poirer from the Sierra Vista Daily Herald, and Harry Brean from the Arizona Daily Star.

Study confirms groundwater pumping linked to river, stream depletion

BLM Publishes Record of Decision and Approved Resource Management Plan and EIS for San Pedro Riparia

On July 30th, 2019 the BLM published the Record of Decision (ROD) and Approved Resource Management Plan and EIS (ARMPEIS) for the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area.

It was started in a decidedly different political climate than the one that exists today. It will be interesting to see what litigation follows the release of this decision. Shar Poirer of the Sierra Vista Herald Tribune has a nice article summarizing the major aspects of the ROD here: https://www.myheraldreview.com/news/cochise_county/hunting-recreation-to-inc
