Water rights

Jason Hauter, legal counsel for the Gila River Indian community looks out over desert land along Old Route 87 (the Hunt Highway) between Alma School and Dobson roads near the Olberg Bridge where the Gila River, once the lifeline of the Indian community used to flow near Sacaton. A recent water rights settlement announced by SRP and the Gila River Indian community is expected to help bring economic development to the region as well as restore many of the Indian community’s riparian areas and wetlands and hopefully, spur the return of the Gila River.
