The was a time in 2014 when the entire Rio Sonora valley was effected by a chemical spill at the Grupo Mexico copper mine in Cananea, The spill caused the closing of 29 wells that provided 95 percent of the population near the Rio Sonora. In addition to cutting off municipal drinking water alone the Rio Sonora, the spill destroyed the dairy industry and farming, killed wildlife and impacted all other aspects of life along the 180 miles of prime riparian habitat.

This ecological disaster inspired Michael Ronstadt to write “Rio Sonora” telling the story of the Sonora river acid spill. On several occasions during our trip to Alamos, Sonora the Ronstadt Generations performed “Rio Sonora” and on one occasion I was able to video it.
