Moenkopi Village celebrates new wastewater treatment plant opening

Self-sustaining infrastructure will be the secret success ingredient

MOENKOPI-The celebratory mood during the grand opening of the Moenkopi Developers Corporation's (MDC) new wastewater treatment plant on Nov. 27 was blessed with a gentle early morning rain shower. It provided both a picturesque and spiritual backdrop to the Kerley Valley amid the large crowd that had come to christen the newest project for Upper Moenkopi.The MDC is keenly aware of three critical elements of long-range economic vision: constitution, self-governance and self-sustainability.
