NOTICE: Line Break at Jesse Owens Park

I've heard from Parks and Rec's Glenna Overstreet that we had a major reclaimed water mainline break at Jesse Owens Park overnight near softball fields #5 & 6. Although it appears the water ran most of the night, there was no runoff toward Sarnoff and it did not leave the property. The reclaimed line has been turned off for now. These fields will likely not be playable this evening.

As temperatures rise, so does community support

Local non-profit launches collaborative "Be Cool, Tucson" program and invites community support to repair evaporative coolers for neighbors at risk in the summer heat.


It was 107 degrees outside on June 14, 2014, when the evaporative cooler on Mary’s trailer finally gave up for good. Mary and her husband, Steve, bought this trailer after years of experiencing homelessness; if the heat drives them out of this trailer, they’ll be homeless once again. As the temperature inside their home rose, Mary called CHRPA.
