September 3, 2019

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. (AP) — Officials at the Grand Canyon have lifted water restrictions after fixing a pipeline break.

A section of the pipeline north of Phantom Ranch broke last week. Visitors and residents of Grand Canyon Village were told to conserve water over the busy holiday weekend.

The national park said Tuesday the pipeline has been fixed and water is available at filling stations along the North Kaibab trail.

Still, the park says anyone hiking within the canyon should be prepared to treat water.
