Does Arizona have clean rivers?

Like other states, some of Arizona’s rivers have pollution problems, although the state, citizens, and organizations work hard to ensure the waterways are clean. The longest river in Arizona – the Colorado River – spans 1,450 miles from Mexico through the Southwestern portion of the United States. If you’re looking for opportunities to go kayaking in Arizona, you’ll find plenty on the Colorado River. Other popular river activities include boating, whitewater rafting, and fishing.
