Good theory but its the freakin moon!
There are no rivers there.....
The "river bed" is not a river bed, and the craters are later additions...
I do wonder if they were formed by a meteor train?
Several of them comming down in a sequence from some space collision in the oort cloud or other impetus?

You have to understand the nature of craters and rilles on the Moon, on Mars, and even on
the Earth. They are the result of electrical discharge an a grand scale. You might want to watch
this video, the Lightning Scarred Planet Mars.
Collapse pits on Mars are formed in serveral ways. In volcanic areas, channelized lava flows can form roofs which insulate the flowing lava. These features are termed lava tubes on Earth and are common features in basaltic flows. After the lava has drained, parts of the roof of the tube will collapse under its own weight. These collapse pits will only be as deep as the bottom of the original lava tube.
This chain may host uncollapsed lava tubes between the depressions suitable for human habitation

One other thing i would love to see OP, and could go a long ways in finding an answer to the first river bed picture. Could you scan north(Above) that picture, and find some evidence of what is feeding that river(That is not a river according to some) ? That would help.
