Little Colorado River Basin Adjudication Support
Client: U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs

MFA economics staff have been providing support to the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs in the Little Colorado River Basin adjudication for many years. MFA is currently assisting the Federal team by developing a long-term population projection for the Navajo Nation. This population projection is being used to forecast future domestic, commercial, municipal, and industrial water requirements. MFA staff will provide expert witness services as needed throughout the basin adjudication process.
