GRAND CANYON – Due to a pipeline break in the inner canyon near Phantom Ranch in Grand Canyon National Park, rangers are advising hikers to be prepared to access and treat or filter creek water below Supai Tunnel and above Phantom Ranch on the North Kaibab Trail.

Potable water is currently not available at Roaring Springs or Cottonwood Campground on the North Kaibab Trail.

Potable water is available on the North and South Rims, at locations along the Bright Angel Trail, at Phantom Ranch, and at Supai Tunnel on the North Kaibab Trail.

The National Park Service expects to have the pipeline repaired sometime early next week.
