ROUND ROCK, Ariz. - Water is a precious commodity and nobody knows that fact more than Navajo families that haul water for every day living. For these families, water conservation is a way of life, not just words espoused in the spirit of ecology.Arbin Mitchell, director of the Navajo Nation Division of Community Development (NNDCD), said funding waterline projects is a mainstay of the division, especially since it helps so many Navajo families."Promoting viable communities through Navajo values is the mission of the division," Mitchell said. "Water is life for Navajo people and nothing is more important than sustaining this natural resource."
