GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — Grand Canyon National Park has announced a failure of the Roaring Springs water pump Oct. 2.

“Our water system did not provide adequate levels of chlorine in the water being used from Roaring Springs due to a malfunctioning chlorine feed pump,” the park said in a release.

As a result, the water was not disinfected as the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) requires. Therefore, the water system violated a treatment technique standard for maintaining adequate disinfection for water delivered to customers from Roaring Springs, they said.

Operators have notified the State Drinking Water division and Grand Canyon operators started the process to plan the repair the malfunctioning chlorine pump at Roaring Springs.

The park said there is not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. More information is available at www.www.nps.gov/grca.
