Dredging the Rillito

The county is blading the Rillito, perhaps to prevent foliage from sucking up water better used to filling the aquifer.

Or perhaps the river has diverted itself to courses along the edges thus eroding the banks. If there is a whole lot of erosion the

bike paths at the top of the banks might tumble down. Tucsonans love their bike paths. Erosion thereof would not do. I have heard these explanations on the trail.
