Water rights

Can a river run through it again?: Vast desert land now stretches through part of the Gila River Indian community where its lifeline used to run — the Gila River. Here, the view is looking west from the Olberg Bridge along Old State Route 87 between Alma School and Dobson roads near Sacaton. A unique water rights settlement agreement between SRP and the Gila River community that was announced earlier this month gives Gila River stewardship over millions of gallons of water that are expected to help bring economic development to the region and restore many of the Indian community’s riparian and wetlands areas. The water will be both provided in surface and ground water, thousands of gallons which will be stored in underground storage projects. (Tribune photo, Mike Sakal)
