City crews will begin to construct a new water and sewer main connection under the Arizona Canal just east of Scottsdale and Camelback roads. The connection will provide upgrades to the water distribution system and improve operational dependability and reliability in the downtown area.

All work is scheduled to be complete by October and will be performed between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
