The Rio Reimagined project to restore the Salt and Gila rivers in metro Phoenix is getting a boost from the feds, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday.

Rio Reimagined has been selected as the latest Urban Waters Federal Partnership project, an EPA program that seeks to cut red tape, open up grant opportunities and  help local leaders decide where to best spend federal money.

Rio Reimagined is the 20th project chosen by the EPA since it launched the collaborative effort in 2011. It’s the only such partnership in Arizona and the first one made under the Trump administration.


“We will see more innovative development across the communities where this fantastic resource is located.”

– Jordan Rose, Rose Law Group Founder and President
