The downtown Indianapolis canal will be drained so that it can cleaned of algae and other plant growth. The cleaning will be along the entire length of the concrete-lined canal through the west side of downtown. Crews will remove the sediment by using equipment and machinery, and debris will be removed for disposal. Crews will also be improving safety grips along the canal walls.
