FUNDING OBTAINED FOR POJOAQUE WATER SYSTEM IN NEW MEXICO
When the water system is complete it will provide clean drinking water to approximately 10,000 people living on tribal and non-tribal land.
Sufficient funding has been obtained to complete the first phase of the Aamodt settlement agreement water infrastructure in the Pojoaque Basin in Santa Fe County, New Mexico.
The funding is due to an additional $137 million in the federal omnibus spending bill signed into law by former President Trump, reported the Albuquerque Journal.
In addition to increased funding, the bill extended the substantial completion date of the project by four years to 2028. The Pojoaque Basin Regional Water System is part of the Aamodt Settlement Agreement and was authorized by Congress under the Aamodt Litigation Settlement Act of 2010 to settle Indian water rights disputes in the Pojoaque Basin.
