Commentary: Demands of growth a constant challenge to Verde River

The Verde River flows continuously for nearly 140 river miles from its headwaters near Paulden to Horseshoe Reservoir about 40 miles southwest of Payson. Continuous flow depends upon the discharge of groundwater into the river over most of its course throughout the year.
