  10. Grand Canyon's water supply comes from Roaring Springs, a natural spring located approximately 3,500 feet below the North Rim. Water is delivered via an aging pipeline that suffers multiple breaks a year. When the pipeline breaks, water stops flowing to the North and South Rims and sites along the way. Although large storage tanks provide ample water to rim locations, while the pipeline is being repaired water may or may not be available below the rim in the cross-canyon Corridor. Please remember, when hiking below the rim a method to treat water must always be part of your hiking gear. The list below shows if water is on or off (if the pipeline is undergoing repairs water may be off temporarily) North Kaibab Trailhead: water ON Supai Tunnel: water ON Roaring Springs Day Use Area: water ON Manzanita Rest Area: water ON Cottonwood Campground: water ON Bright Angel Campground: water ON Plateau Point: water ON Indian Garden: ON year-round Bright Angel Trail, Three-Mile Resthouse: water ON Bright Angel Trail, Mile-and-a-Half Resthouse: water ON Bright Angel Trailhead: ON year-round South Kaibab Trailhead: ON year-round Seasonal water stations are usually turned off for the winter sometime between Oct 10th and 30th dependent on location and associated temperatures.
