FARMINGTON — The fight over water in San Juan County is far from over despite an historic water rights settlement approved late last week that could impact San Juan County’s residents for decades to come. The settlement was signed by Judge James Wechsler in the Aztec District Court and guarantees the Navajo Nation an additional 130,000 acre-feet of water on top of the 195,000 acre-feet previously allotted to the tribal government.
