Grand Canyon lifts parkwide water restrictions after weeks of shortages
PHOENIX — The Grand Canyon National Park announced Tuesday that all water restrictions have been lifted.
The water in storage tanks on both the North and South rims has reached sustainable levels after weeks of pipeline breaks and restrictions.
The park still urges all visitors, residents and businesses to follow water conservation practices at all times.
According to the park, this includes turning off the water while brushing teeth or shaving, washing only full loads of dishes or laundry and reporting leaks and wasteful water use to appropriate staff.
In future events of a water shortage, park officials will put restrictions in place based on the current volume of water at the time.
The restrictions may include the use of disposable dishes and utensils in restaurants, implementing low-water cleaning practices in hotel rooms, closing public laundry and shower facilities and closing the RV dump/fill station at camper services, according to the park.
