Flagstaff water drilling may set up fight with Navajos

It looks like there may be a fight brewing between the City of Flagstaff and the Navajo Nation over groundwater. The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the city council approved a $1.8 million drilling project on the city-owned Red Gap Ranch 35 miles east of Flagstaff. Reporter Joe Ferguson says Navajo Nation is threatening suit because they believe "the city wants to drill immediately so that the wells are exempted from a future regional water settlement that might preclude any city drilling."
