Grand Canyon National Park: What visitors should know about water restrictions

After a series of breaks along a pipeline, Grand Canyon National Park visitors can expect a few changes.

It was earlier announced that the availability  of drinking water in the cross-Canyon corridor  is limited.

The park noted the aging Transcanyon waterline suffering multiple breaks each year. 

Water spigots at the South Rim's Mather and Desert View Campgrounds will be turned off.

Many conservation measures were in  place across North and South Rims.

This included the usage of disposable dishes, utensils at restaurants and serving water on request and cleaning hotel rooms with low-water-use methods.

Visitors are requested to take shorter showers,  turn off faucets while brushing teeth and selectively flush toilets.
