Unprecedented flood of the lower Salt River!
ALERT! We received a call from SRP. Because upper reservoirs are full, they are releasing a LOT of water from the Stewart mountain dam into the lower Salt River. UPDATE: It is now a dangerous amount of flooding (between 30,000 and 40,000 CFS) so PLEASE everyone be careful!!
SRWHMG volunteers, please evacuate all rec sites, rec sites are closed at this time. This is a truly dangerous situation for wild horses, wildlife, and for people as well. Our volunteers will be patrolling the road only for as long as it is open.
Be safe everyone.
As always, when you see a wild horse in trouble, please call the SRWHMG hotline. (480) 868 9301. However please be aware we cannot do much right now, as peoples lives still trump horses lives. Wild horses are very smart and we are hoping they all found high ground, but prayers and good vibes are needed for the Salt River wild horses and their 2019 foals right now.
Thank you, SRWHMG.
