GRAND CANYON, AZ - Rangers at Grand Canyon National Park say there's been a pipeline break in the inner canyon near Phantom Ranch that could affect thirsty hikers.
They say hikers are being advised to be prepared to access and treat or filter creek water below Supai Tunnel and above Phantom Ranch on the North Kaibab Trail.
Potable water currently unavailable at Roaring Springs or Cottonwood Campground on the North Kaibab Trail.
But rangers say potable water is available on the North and South Rims, at locations along the Bright Angel Trail, at Phantom Ranch, and at Supai Tunnel on the North Kaibab Trail.
National Park Service officials said Friday that the pipeline is expected to be repaired by early next week.
