FILE – The Colorado River in the upper River Basin is seen, May 29, 2021, in Lees Ferry, Ariz. The Navajo Nation, a Native American tribe with one of the largest outstanding claims to water in the Colorado River basin, is closing in on a settlement with more than a dozen parties, putting it on a path to piping water to tens of thousands of tribal members in Arizona who still live without it. Negotiating terms outlined Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2024, include water rights not only for the Navajo Nation but the neighboring Hopi and San Juan Southern Paiute tribes in the northeastern corner of the state.
