Drinking water needs are critical. The reservation sits on a rock formation blocking access to groundwater. The Kickapoo Tribe has had a water plant since the 1970’s. The water used on the reservation comes from the Delaware River and is treated at the water plant. Over the years it has been repeatedly repaired but the structure is old and inadequate for the current needs. Recently in 2007, rainstorms further damaged the dam structure and surrounding area. Governmental agencies have agreed to help with funding to rebuild the damaged areas.
