The Salt River Valley and Maricopa Canals were the first irrigation canals excavated in the Valley since ancient times and are significant in the development of what would become modern Phoenix. The canals were abandoned, infilled, and mostly forgotten by the mid-20 th Century, but their precise locations across the city can still be found using Google Earth, geographic information technology, publicly available data, and a keen eye. This presentation will be led by Dan Garcia, who is Salt River Project's Senior Cultural Resource Manager.​
