and sufficient water supplies available to residents of the
Jicarilla Apache Reservation in the State of New Mexico;

of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and is outdated, dilapidated,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;

Jicarilla Apache Reservation has been unable to meet the
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
public health and safety both on and off the Jicarilla Apache

economic development and has detrimental effects on the quality
of life and economic self-sufficiency of the Jicarilla Apache

economic development, the Jicarilla Apache Tribe has authorized
and expended $4,500,000 of tribal funds for the repair and
