On Thursday, February 15, 2024, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly, Chair of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure, will hold a hearing in Flagstaff—the first Senate field hearing in the city in over 30 years—on the water infrastructure needs of small and rural communities in the western United States.
As Arizona communities cope with the impacts of both drought and destructive flooding, Kelly will use the hearing to highlight flood control and water conservation challenges in Arizona and across the West, as well as how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers can play a larger role in addressing them. The hearing will feature testimony from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and local government leaders, including Flagstaff Mayor Becky Daggett, Navajo County Supervisor Alberto Peshlakai, and Pascua Yaqui Chairman Peter Yucupicio.
