1 Think-Pair-Share What are some limited natural resources that you use on a regular basis?: 1

2 What about water? 2

3 How many different ways do you use water in a day? 3

4 Today we will be analyzing the complex process of determining water rights as well as examining the relationship between Native Americans, the State, and the Federal Government. 4

5 Drought in Arizona 5

6 Arizona Water Sources  Groundwater: 40%  Surface Water  Colorado River: 39%  Other Surface Water: 19%  Effluent aka Reclaimed Water: 2% 6

7 History of Arizona Water  National Reclamation Act  Authorized the Salt River Project  Goal: Provide adequate water for agricultural development in the west.  Colorado River Compact- approved by Arizona in

8 History of Arizona Water  Central Arizona Project 1968  Transports water from Colorado river to central and southern Arizona  1980 Ground water Act  Limited Groundwater use 8

9 Arizona Politicians and Water Rights  Jon Kyl: Arizona Senator  Wanted to guarantee “Wet” water rights  2004 Arizona Water Settlement Act  Navajo-Hopi Colorado River Water Rights and Settlement Act of  Jon Kyl Interview with Sandra Day O’Connor (7:30-11:00)  Pay close attention to what Kyl has to say about water rights and Native Americans 9

10 Native American reservations in Arizona 10

11 Native Americans in Arizona  Indian Reservations  Water Rights have been guaranteed by the federal government  Unclear nature of water rights= inadequate “Wet” water rights for Native American tribes 11

12 Native American Water Rights  Winters V. United States-1908  Arizona v. California 1963  Arizona v. San Carlos Apache Tribe

13 2004 Arizona Water Settlement Acts  Gila River Indian Community and Tohono O’odham Nation given funding to expand water infrastructure  The Act allows these tribes to make use of water rights that previously existed only on paper.  Certainty of Water Rights 13

14 How did they come to this agreement?  The first step was to negotiate out the terms of the agreement with all parties involved. The ultimate goal for all parties was certainty of water now and for future generations  Indian Communities  State of Arizona  Water Districts  Arizona Cities  Private Companies  Federal Government  Jon Kyl- Arizona Senator 14

15 Approving the settlement  State Approval  Required because the settlement involved funding from the State  Federal Approval  Required because the settlement involved funding from the federal government. 15

16 Visualizing the Process  Now its your turn to help us visualize the process of the 2004 Arizona Water settlement Acts  Using the notes you have just taken along with the packet that is being handed as a group of four you will create a visual organizer of the process of the 2004 Arizona Water settlement act  Be sure to include the negotiation stage, passing state legislation and federal legislation. 16

17 Settlement vs. Lawsuit  What is the difference between a settlement and a Lawsuit?  Why do you think that when it comes to water rights t Native Americans and other involved entities choose to settle rather then file a lawsuit?  Think about a time when it would be beneficial to settle with someone rather then sue and accept the decision of the court? 17
