The Eastern Navajo Water Pipeline phase 2 is now under construction. Officials say it will bring clean, safe water to nearly 10,000 homes.
The new water system will serve Burnham, Huerfano, Nageezi, Counselor, Ojo Encino, Torreon, Pueblo Pintado, Whitehorse Lake, Lake Valley, and Becenti. Currently, thousands of residents drive long distances to fill containers with safe water to take home.

"Water is life, and for those that are not getting running water right now, we are working very hard," said Ben Shelly, Navajo Nation Vice President.
Federal, state, and Navajo dollars funded the nearly $30,000,000 project.
Officials say it will also provide running water to another 12,000 people in the next 20 years.
