Image of Salt River Near Roosevelt (09498500), April 22, 1937.
W.E. Dickinson 2166, courtesy of the U.S. Geological Survey In this upstream view, the Salt River is flowing at 4,000 ft3/s. The long-term gaging station in this reach is associated with the bridge in the distance, and a diversion dam is present just downstream from this camera station. Two months before this photograph was taken, the brush-covered island at right center was submerged during a February flood; most floods on the Salt River occur during the winter months. This camera station is several miles upstream from the top of Roosevelt Lake, the first of the major flood control and water supply structures on the Salt River upstream from Phoenix.
