Editorial: Navajo Nation deserves clean water
"What modern luxury has become so integral to our daily lives that it barely deserves the title?

Running water.

You can rest assured that any time you turn a knob or faucet in Farmington, you will be met with clean, running water available for drinking, cooking, bathing and other essential tasks.

Leave Farmington, and the assurance gets a little blurry.

Running water is not on the radar for much of the Navajo Nation. Many residents are forced to haul water from far-off wells to meet their daily needs, and the water quality can be dubious at best.

The Navajo people deserve clean running water like the rest of us."
