- Tempe officials say they will begin draining Tempe Town Lake on February 10th while they construct a steel gate dam system.

The steel dam will replace a rubber dam that was plagued with problems including a burst in recent years.

Water from the lake will be diverted into the SRP canal system so crews can begin construction work.

All parks and pathways will remain open during construction, but water activities will be prohibited until an estimated April 30.
