The “water lady” is a local hero in this area of the Navajo Nation.
The “water lady’s” big yellow truck is a refreshing sight at the Navajo Nation.
Darlene Arviso, known as “the water lady,” delivers water five days a week to communities without plumbing and clean water on the Navajo reservation surrounding Thoreau, New Mexico, Navajo Times reported. She totes over 3,000 gallons of water in her truck, traveling 75 miles and visiting about a dozen families every day.
“I enjoy my job,” Arviso told the news site. “I like what I’m doing because I’m helping my people.”
