Colorado River Indian Tribes to get federal funding for irrigation and utilities

The Department of the Interior announced this week that nearly $10 million will be allocated for irrigation projects and power utilities owned by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. 

More than $1.5 million will go toward irrigation projects for the Colorado River Indian Tribes, a single tribal nation in western Arizona, near Parker. The reservation will get an additional $1 million for power utilities. 

Over the next five years, $50 million will be invested in similar projects on land owned by the Bureau.
