Water restored at Grand Canyon after pipeline break
GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. – Officials at the Grand Canyon have lifted water restrictions after fixing a pipeline break.
A section of the pipeline north of Phantom Ranch broke last week.
Visitors and residents of Grand Canyon Village were told to conserve water over the busy Labor Day holiday weekend.
Crews had esteimated it would take at least four days to fix the damage, which was reported last Thursday.
The national park said Tuesday the pipeline has been fixed and water is available at filling stations along the North Kaibab trail.
Still, park staff advises anyone hiking within the canyon to be prepared to treat water.
More than 80 breaks in the pipe have been recorded since 2010.
