Water off again at Grand Canyon

Post by Al_HikesAZ » Oct 04 2018 9:16 pm

I searched but couldn't find an existing thread.

Water is off again due to breaks in the pipeline.

I know people are planning on R2Rs so be careful and check before you go.

@Al_HikesAZ
Thanks for the info...I wonder if you can still get water at Phantom Ranch or Indian Garden?

@DixieFlyer
The National Park Service has a "current conditions" page on the website of each individual park. It's always a good idea to check before you go.

For the Grand Canyon, it's here:
https://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

The relevant information to your specific query:
Drinking water is available at the following inner canyon locations: Phantom Ranch, Bright Angel Campground, Indian Garden, Mile and a Half, and Three Mile rest houses. The South Rim water bottle filling stations- including those at the South Kaibab and Bright Angel trailheads- are turned off.
The status also says that the PR and BA water may be turned off during repairs:

Always carry a treatment method and be prepared to treat creek water!
Where is the "dislike" button?
