Hopi Tribe files lawsuit over reclaimed sewage at sacred site

Filed Under: Environment | Law

The Hopi Tribe filed a new lawsuit aimed at stopping the use of reclaimed sewage in the sacred San Francisco Peaks in Arizona.

Arizona Snowbowl, a ski resort in the peaks, won federal approval to use reclaimed sewage to make fake snow. The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., claims the U.S. Forest Service failed to consider all of the environmental impacts of the plan.

The tribe was part of an earlier lawsuit that raised religious freedom and environmental concerns. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the case in 2008.

Indian activists subsequently filed a new lawsuit that raised similar issues. The 9th Circuit dismissed the case earlier this year.
