The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reporting some issues with the Cocopah Bend RV & Golf Resort’s elevated water tank that could potentially affect their residents’ drinking water, according to KSWT.
The EPA is the primary agency that regulates drinking water on tribal land. In May 2019, it found several ongoing issues while conducting routine sanitary checks of the Yuma, Ariz., resort’s drinking water system.
After completing a thorough inspection of Cocopah’s drinking water system, the inspection revealed problems with Cocopah’s water tank’s infrastructure.
EPA officials said the resort’s water tank and pipes weren’t properly sealed, and if it stayed that way it could allow bacteria and even rodents to get into the tank and contaminate the drinking water.
