Company's bid to build dams on tribal land a step closer

TUBA CITY, Ariz. (AP) — Federal regulators have accepted a Phoenix-based company’s application for a preliminary permit to look further into building hydro-powered dams on tribal land. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission confirmed the acceptance in a letter Tuesday to Pumped Hydro Storage LLC, opening the door for public comment on the controversial proposal on the Navajo Nation. The move by the commission gives the company three years to study the site in Big Canyon west of Tuba City but doesn’t authorize land disturbance. The company developed the idea after getting pushback for initially floating projects on the Little Colorado River. All of the proposals would need the blessing of the Navajo Nation.
