      He said the Colorado River Basin Project Act limits the amount of water that can be taken from the Gila or its tributaries to , acre-feet during a year period. Quaternary geology of the Safford Basin, Graham County, Arizona, was mapped in three 7 1/2' minute quadrangles: Artesia, Safford and Thatcher. The geologic mapping is original but informed by previous works in the Gila River Valley. Holocene geomorphic boundaries of the Gila River were based on work by Klawon et al. ().

Gila County comprises the Payson, Arizona Micropolitan Statistical Area.. Gila County contains parts of Fort Apache Indian Reservation and San Carlos Indian Reservation.

New Mexico would pay an exchange fee for the Gila River water, which would allow the Gila River Indian Community, a downstream Gila River user in Arizona, to buy Colorado River water from the Central Arizona Project (CAP).

      Late Quaternary alluvial chronologies are established for five streams (Gila River, Salt River, Tonto Creek, Santa Cruz River, and San Pedro River) in the Gila basin of southern Arizona.

That exchange fee, in turn, pays for water that CAP delivers to GRIC. The US Bureau of Reclamation’s Jeff Riley explains it this way: If New Mexico builds a diversion and its water users, for example, divert 1, acre feet of water from the Upper Gila, they need to replace the water GRIC would normally divert from the Gila downstream in Arizona.
