Stimulus money for better water
Indian communities throughout Utah and New Mexico are getting federal stimulus money to improve water quality. The AP reports in the Salt Lake Tribune that the Skull Valley Band of the Goshutes and the Ute Indian Tribe will each receive in excess of $100,000 to upgrade drinking water supplies.
In the Santa Fe New Mexican, the AP reports nearly $5 million will be shared by six American Indian communities for water improvements. The improvements are expected to create jobs.
