Trans-Canyon Pipeline repaired at Grand Canyon
Drinking water once again available at all filling stations in the Inner Canyon
Williams-Grand Canyon News


GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - Potable water is once again available at all filling stations within the Inner Canyon at Grand Canyon National Park.

On May 25, two breaks in the park's trans-canyon pipeline were discovered. While the breaks were being repaired, it was not possible to supply potable water to the Roaring Springs and Cottonwood Campground areas along the North Kaibab Trail. Public notification was made that hikers in these areas would need to be prepared to treat or filter creek water.

On May 31, an additional break in the pipeline washed out a 45-foot section of the North Kaibab Trail, necessitating the trail's closure to through-travel.

By June 2, a temporary route through the damaged section of trail had been established, and the trail closure was lifted; but repair of the third and final break in the pipeline still needed to be completed.

Repairs to the trans-canyon pipeline are now complete and potable water is once again flowing to all areas of the park, including all filling stations on the North Kaibab and Bright Angel Trails.

Repair of the damaged section of the North Kaibab Trail is ongoing. Hikers should be aware that temporary closures may be necessary for repairs to progress, and may occur with little or no notice.

For the most current information on trail conditions and water availability, please contact one of the park's Backcountry Information Centers at: South Rim - (928) 638-7875, or North Rim - (928) 638-7868. You may also visit www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/trail-closures.htm.
