A break in a section of pipeline along the North Kaibab trail, north of Phantom Ranch, was identified on Aug. 29, resulting in limited water services and water conservation measures over the holiday weekend. 


Grand Canyon National Park always operates under water conservation measures, encouraging all residents, visitors, and businesses to mindfully use water and adopt basic water conservation practices. 

The National Park Service would like to thank its partners, staff, residents, and visitors for conserving water during this time and for their continued water conservation efforts.
