After several weeks of pipeline breaks and water restrictions, water in storage tanks on both North and South rims of Grand Canyon National Park have reached sustainable levels.
Visitors, residents, and businesses should continue to use basic water conservation practices and mindful water use at all times. Water conservation tips for visitors and residents include turning off the water while brushing teeth or shaving, washing only full loads of dishes or laundry, and reporting leaks and wasteful water use to appropriate staff. Residents are also reminded to use reclaimed water for plants, lawns, and washing vehicles and to not fill large-capacity water tanks in the park.
In the event of a future disruption in water delivery, park managers will implement mandatory water restriction levels based on the volume of water in storage. Some restrictions may include the use of disposable dishes and utensils in restaurants; implementing low-water cleaning practices in hotel rooms; closing public laundry and shower facilities and closing the RV dump/fill station at Camper Services.
The National Park Service would like to thank its partners, staff, residents and visitors for conserving water over the last several weeks and for their continued water conservation efforts
