"A significant percentage of the water and funding for the White Mountain Apache settlement has already been set aside in legislation I sponsored, the Arizona Water Settlements Act. The Arizona Water Settlements Act, which became law in 2004, settled expensive and lengthy litigation concerning the Gila River Indian Community’s rights to Gila River water and other water supplies, and the claims of the Tohono O’odham Nation for damages from groundwater pumping in southern Arizona. It also set aside 67,300 acre-feet of Central Arizona Project, CAP, water per year to resolve Indian water claims in Arizona and established a $250 million fund for future Arizona Indian water settlements."
Arizona Water Settlements Act November 17, 2004

"Funding will also be available to underwrite the cost of two tribal water settlements provided by this legislation, approved by this legislation. In addition, a new source of funding will be available to underwrite the costs of new Indian water rights settlements. By making the CAP water and unappropriated funding available, this legislation makes it much more likely that all the remaining Indian water right disputes in Arizona can and will be resolved in the near future."
Arizona Water Settlements Act October 11, 2004
Jon Kyl, R-AZ
"Since Arizona began receiving CAP water from the Colorado River, litigation has divided water users over how the CAP water should be allocated and exactly how much Arizona was required to repay the Federal Government. This bill will, among other things, codify the settlement reached between the United States and the Central Arizona Water Conservation District over the State’s repayment obligation for costs incurred by the United States in constructing the Central Arizona Project. It will also resolve, once and for all, the allocation of all remaining CAP water. This final allocation will provide the stability necessary for State water authorities to plan for Arizona’s future water needs. In addition, approximately 200,000 acre-feet of CAP water will be made available to settle various Indian water claims in the State. The bill would also authorize the use of the Lower Colorado River Basin Development Fund, which is funded solely from revenues paid by Arizona entities, to construct irrigation works necessary for tribes with congressionally approved water settlements to use CAP water."
