" This project is very important to Santa Clara ... This is one of the biggest pieces of development we have ever seen on the south side of (Highway) 101. "

" Water is the lifeblood of our communities. Whether it's for drinking, irrigation, or livestock, a reliable source of water is critical to our way of life in New Mexico. It is critical that we have the infrastructure in place to address our water needs ... Funding for this project will help Santa Clara Pueblo take a critical step forward to make the most of its water resources and give the community the peace of mind that it will have the resources it needs to thrive.
