Forest officials have closed down Granite Reef, Coon Bluff, and Phon D Sutton recreation sites along the Salt River amid higher water levels, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
MCSO Sergeant Joaquin Enriquez told ABC15 the river is dangerous right now, especially with more rain and higher SRP water releases on the way.
