Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye (r) and Vice President Jonathan Nez (l)
WINDOW ROCK, ARIZONA – The office of the Navajo Nation President and Vice President signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Tuesday May 17, with the United States, Navajo Nation, Indian Health Services (IHS), Navajo Engineering and Construction Authority (NECA) and Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA).
This is a project that will create a community water supply and wastewater facilities for the Beclabito and Cudei chapters of Navajo Nation in the San Juan County of New Mexico.
Vice President Nez said, “the Shiprock Sweetwater Transmission line is a project that community members have been in need of for years, to provide water and waste water facilities to this part of the Navajo Nation.”
“Community members in this area have asked even as a council delegate at one point in time about waterline and waste water facilities for years, as one of the four pillars (infrastructure) of this administration I am excited to see this come to fruition,” stated President Begaye.
The Begaye-Nez administration continues to meet and exceed goals set at the onset of taking office in May of 2015. This is another unmet need of infrastructure, which is one of the four pillars being accomplished.
