Feds to take comments on use of river water

Citizen Staff Writer

The Bureau of Reclamation will take comments on the environmental assessment of a plan to let Colorado River water replenish ground water under a Tohono O’odham Nation farm.

The water – allocated to the tribe under an agreement with the federal government – would let the water trickle into the ground through two streambeds in the tribe’s San Xavier District, according to a news release.

The water would ensure a reliable supply for the nation’s San Xavier Cooperative Farm, which grows a variety of food and hay near Interstate 19.

Draft environmental assessment and comments can be obtained/made at rkonst@lc.usbr.gov or the reclamation’s Phoenix office Web site at www.usbr.gov/lc/phoenix. For more information, call John McGlothlen at (623) 773-6256.

Comments must be received by April 13.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
