Interior Commemorates Navajo-Gallup Water Supply Project

Water pipeline first installment of water infrastructure project.

The Department of the Interior commemorated a major point of completion for the Navajo-Gallup Water Supply Project (NGWSP) last week, officially transferring the management of the project to Tribal leaders. Construction for the NGWSP began in 2012, and is expected to be completed by 2029. When completed, it will include 300 miles of pipeline to bring indoor plumbing to the Tribal nations that have gone without for decades.

“Water is a sacred resource, and water rights are crucial to ensuring the health, safety and empowerment of Tribal communities,” said Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland. “I am grateful that Tribes, some of whom have been waiting for this water and funding for decades, are finally getting the resources they are owed.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland as she oversees the management of national resources.
  • For tribal leaders who are taking over the Navajo-Gallup water management.
  • For wisdom for officials in the Interior Department as they implement methods of conservation and stewardship.
