Grand Canyon National Park dropped mandatory water restrictions Monday. On September 5, park managers implemented mandatory water restrictions for the South Rim when water levels fell below an acceptable level due to a failure in the system. Water utilities crews immediately began working to address the problem, and were able to get the water flowing again within a few days, park officials said. However, until water storage levels were adequate, park managers did not feel comfortable lifting restrictions. Although restrictions have been lifted, Grand Canyon National Park staff reminded residents and visitors that water is precious in the desert, and they should always be conscientious of how much water is used and for what.
