Water Conservation Measures Put Into Play At The South Rim Of The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon National Park is initiating water conservation measures for the South Rim. Effective immediately, conservation measures are needed due to diminished water supplies. Crews are continuing to investigate challenges with water treatment and can’t pump water from Roaring Springs to the South Rim to replenish water stores. Crews are working to reestablish water treatment to ensure drinking water is safe for the public. In the meantime, all concession operations will switch to disposable dishes and utensils, alter menus to use less water for food prep and dish washing, adopt low water use for hotel room cleaning and serve drinking water at restaurants by request only. Hikers in the backcountry should plan to carry all their water, or methods to treat water. For more information log onto the Grand Canyon National Park’s website.
