Additional water restrictions are being implemented at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. National Park Service officials say restrictions are needed due to a series of breaks in the Transcanyon Waterline. Under the additional water restrictions, camper services operated by Delaware North will be closed, water spigots in Mather Campground and at Desert View Campground will be turned off. Visitors and residents may experience additional water conservation measures while visiting the park. In addition to the new conservation measures, all existing ones for the North and South rims will remain in effect. Hikers in the backcountry should plan to carry all of their water, or methods to treat water.
