Survey Shows Strong Support for Davis-Monthan

SADA was formed three years ago to increase the awareness of the contributions the bases make to the local economy and to help the Air Force in its decisions where resources should be deployed.

Aging Infrastructure Affecting Tucson Water

While crews spent most of yesterday and today working to repair a broken water main at 22nd Street and Alvernon Way, the 63-year-old, 30-inch main is part of an ongoing problem of aging infrastructure.

Water rate hikes average about 8 percent a year, and even though residents are doing a great job of conserving water, Tucson Water says that's not enough to fix the hundreds of miles of pipeline that are more than 60 years old.
