Break-Prone Water Pipe Across Grand Canyon Needs Replacement

Grand Canyon National Park officials plan to replace much of a decades-old, problem-plagued pipeline system that’s forced officials to ask hotels and residents to wash dishes and laundry less frequently and backpackers to drink treated creek water. Crews regularly have to descend into the northern Arizona canyon by trail or helicopter to fix costly rockslide-caused breaks to the 6-inch aluminum pipe that supplies water to hotels, campgrounds and other facilities.
