PHOENIX (AP) - Crews are expected to complete repairs Monday to a Central Arizona Project canal after a breach last month near Bouse.
The Arizona Republic reports that crews began pouring concrete this week.
Central Arizona Project delivers the water through a series of canals to about 80 percent of the state's population.
The canal panels failed Sept. 30 near Parker and let 160 million gallons of water flood the area after a storm.
The water spilled into the nearby wash and flooded Arizona 72.
The highway was reopened.
The cause of the breach is under investigation.
