Arizona canal repair expected to be done Monday

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.
