of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and is outdated, dilapidated,
and cannot adequately and safely serve the existing and future
growth needs of the Jicarilla Apache Tribe;

minimum Federal water requirements necessary for discharging
wastewater into a public watercourse and has been operating
without a Federal discharge permit;

the Jicarilla Apache Reservation has been cited by the United
States Environmental Protection Agency for violations of
Federal safe drinking water standards and poses a threat to
