Navajo Sues For Colorado River Rights
"Growth in the Southwest is making every drop of the Colorado desirable, spurring water negotiations and settlements that are leaving the Navajo feeling like wallflowers. Their suit, filed this spring, adds yet another tangle to the knot of demands tightening around the 1,400-mile-long river.Colorado water sprinkles the lawns of Arizona subdivisions, fills the irrigation ditches of desert farms in Southern California and sustains the artificial lakes of Las Vegas. But it doesn't do anything for the Navajo Reservation sprawling to the east of the river above Lake Mead."
