Grand Canyon, Ariz.–Water utility staff at Grand Canyon National Park will begin repairs to a break in the Transcanyon Pipeline. The break is located north of Phantom Ranch on the North Kaibab Trail in an area known as "The Box."

To make the repairs, crews will shut water off at Roaring Springs. Cottonwood Campground and Manzanita Rest Area (formerly Roaring Springs Residence) on the North Kaibab Trail will not have potable water until the repairs are complete. Phantom Ranch will utilize water storage tanks and will have drinking water available. As always, the National Park Service reminds hikers to be self-sufficient and carry all water or have a way to treat creek water.

All Grand Canyon National Park trails remain open. The NPS encourages hikers to be prepared and Hike Smart. More information is available at http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/hike-tips.htm.

Pipeline breaks are not uncommon and the National Park Service is usually able to maintain operations without significant disruptions to visitors. Hikers may contact the park's Backcountry Information Center at 928-638-7875 for more information and updates on pipeline repairs.
