    Additional Notes
    This SHA will provide a net conservation benefit to the Gila topminnow and Desert pupfish in Arizona on lands and within waters owned and managed by the Arizona Department of Transportation. As of AUG 2012, this agreement has not yet been implemented, and is unlikely to. The one site most suitable is now unsuitable, and staff changes at ADOT have been an issue.
