Grand Canyon National Park orders water conservation amid diminished supplies

Grand Canyon National Park has announced that it is once again mandating water conservation measures due to diminished supplies.

The park is asking visitors and residents to reduce their water usage in homes, hotels, and campgrounds.

The water conservation measures went into effect immediately on Tuesday, June 13. They will remain in place until further notice.

The park is asking visitors and residents to take the following steps to conserve water:

– Take shorter showers. – Turn off the faucet when you brush your teeth or shave.

– Fix any leaks – Use a bucket to collect water for dishes or laundry. – Water plants in the morning or evening when it is cooler. – Avoid watering lawns and gardens.

The park is also asking visitors to carry all their water when hiking in the backcountry.

Make sure not to take plastic bottles.

The water conservation measures are being implemented because the park is unable to pump water from Roaring Springs to the South Rim to replenish water stores.

Roaring Springs is the park's main source of water.

The park is working to re-establish water treatment and ensure drinking water is safe for the public.

This is the second time in the past year that the park has implemented water conservation measures.

Last year, the park implemented similar measures in parts of July, August, and September.

The park is asking for the public's cooperation in conserving water. By working together, we can help to ensure that the park has enough water to meet the needs of visitors and residents.

Hope you enjoyed this story about Grand Canyon National Park's water conservation measures. It is a serious issue that the park is facing, and it is important to raise awareness about it.
