    New question here. Where did "Reach 11" get its weird name?

    I've searched on the interwebs and turned up nothing. Anyone know?

    It's the 11th "reach" of the Central Arizona Project, the canal that runs along side of it. Each reach is a portion of the canal.

    Now if we could use the CAP for navigation, that would be sweet. That water looks much more inviting than the sludge in the Salt River complex canals.

    My google must be different than yours. This thread is first on the results list, then this:

    Reach 11 Sports Complex - Official Site of the City of Phoenix

    Which does not address the name, then a bunch of totally unrelated crap after that.
