    The Corps Network 2023 Project of the Year Award: Acoma Pueblo Water Delivery

    News

    On October 27, 2022, a water tank broke, creating a major water infrastructure crisis within the Pueblo of Acoma. There was no running water, forcing the health clinic, dialysis center, and schools to close. The lack of running water was especially challenging and dangerous for elderly residents and others who do not have the resources or ability to haul water. Aaron Lowden, former Acoma Program Manager for Ancestral Lands Conservation Corps (ALCC), sent out the call to help deliver water to those in need. ALCC responded.

    The hand of the original builder: Wupatki Pueblo

    News

    As a Native ancestral site, Wupatki holds deep meaning for a number of Southwestern cultural groups. That recognition has led to incorporating traditional knowledge and Indigenous viewpoints. To that end, young men and women with the Ancestral Lands Conservation Corps are key participants in the new grant-funded program. Crews from Zuni (and possibly other tribes in the future) are gaining field experience in stabilization and repair, and learning of possible professional careers in preservation and interpretation.
