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.

Thanks for the info...I wonder if you can still get water at Phantom Ranch or Indian Garden?
I'd rather die of exhaustion than die of starvation.

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:

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!
