White Mountain Apache Tribe Needs Water
Cibecue, Arizona is suffering in the heat wave with failed pumps and very little water. The White Mountain Apache Tribe is declaring an emergency. They are requesting cases of bottled water be dropped off at the Navajo County Board of Supervisors Offices in Holbrook, or to the Reception Desk in Show Low at 550 N. 9th Place. This area is only receiving about 5% of their normal water amount. Yavapai County is in less dire need. The heat has upped usage to the point of straining the limits of their equipment though it's still functioning. They are requesting people to conserve at least 50% of their normal use.
