On a sunny fall day, Santos Obedoza approaches a fire hydrant on the Upper Lake Rancheria here in northern California. With wrench in hand, he gingerly begins turning the hydrant’s lock and valve to open and flush them. In minutes, the water gushes across the road. It’s a hard job, clearly, but someone has to do it. Alongside Obedoza stands Lee Schegg, RCAC rural development specialist and Tribal circuit rider.
