On Thursday, October 8, 2020, Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer toured Pesco Process Equipment & Service Company Inc. in Farmington to address the workforce and company leaders as he commends their work to producing water filtration technology.
Vice President Lizer visited the facility as the company will offer a key role in water research project that benefits the Navajo Nation. Navajo Technical University and New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to begin the process of studying the water Wells and tanks on the Navajo Nation. The water research is important, as it will give the institution the correct information and date about the water within Navajo communities.
“It is important for each of you to understand your role and participation in designing these vessels and the impacts it will have,” said Vice President Lizer as he addressed the workforce. “I believe in engineering and science. I believe that water research project such as this one — can be successful,” added Vice President Lizer. “It’s great to see many Navajo skilled workers creating opportunities for those that lack water on the Navajo Reservation,” concluded Vice President Lizer.
The Nez-Lizer Administration continues to support projects between the two institutes as the Navajo Nation battles the COVID-19. Vice President Lizer extends his appreciation to PESCO for their invitation, hospitality and words of encouragement.
Lizer also met with San Juan County Sheriff, Shane Ferrari to discuss issues in San Juan County related to the Navajo people.
