FYI: Senate Bill 2109 (S. 2109) is the controversial Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado River Water RIghts Settlement Act of 2012 which aims to settle water rights to the Little Colorado River watershed, a tributary of the Colorado River in northeast Arizona. The bill secures unappropriated water in the basin to authorize construction of municipal water development related to water rights claims to the Colorado River in return for promises for water development projects for parts of the reservation. Included in the bill is the extension of a lease to the coal-fired Navajo Generating Station in Page, AZ and a clause that restricts the Navajo Nation's ability to sue for damage and pollution to an aquifer.
So it seems to me that Sierra Club, Grand Canyon Trust and other NGOs who oppose the enviornmental concerns stemming from the Navajo Generating Station and mining activities by Peabody have used the references to such projects in SB 2109 to rally Navajo Students to oppose and rally against the Little Colorado River Settlement Agreement.
The BIG "IF" within this Press Release: The Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe will waive their claims to the Little Colorado River in exchange for three water-delivery projects that will bring drinking water to the reservations. Under the agreement, the Navajo Nation has also agreed to dismiss additional claims against the United States regarding management of the Lower Colorado River. Those claims specifically affect water policy and water management in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Finally, the agreement authorizes the reallocation of 6,411 acre-feet of water to the Navajo Nation for delivery through the Navajo-Gallup pipeline. The reallocation will occur--IF--and when the tribes agree to extend the leases and other agreements associated with the Navajo Generating Station.
