This page features drone footage and still imagery of the Salt River, near Theodore Roosevelt Lake in Arizona. The Salt River, which runs for about 200 miles, is a key component of Phoenix’s water supply and the largest tributary of the Gila River. Theodore Roosevelt Dam, completed in 1911, was one of the first major projects of the agency now known as the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
