Interior Secretary to sign Navajo water settlement
Las Vegas, Nevada (AP)
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar was preparing to sign a new Navajo water agreement that quantifies the tribe's water rights in the lower Colorado River basin.
Salazar and Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley Jr. are slated to sign the agreement during the Colorado River Water Users Association annual conference in Las Vegas.
The San Juan Navajo Water Rights Settlement attempts to resolve a 142-year-old dispute. Government officials say it will provide a long-term clean water supply to the tribe that will improve health conditions on the reservation and pave the way for future economic development in northwestern New Mexico.
