Home / Recent news / Grand Canyon's water ‘backbone' to get major overhaul starting this fall  On the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, water from Roaring Springs cascades down Bright Angel shale to the canyon floor below. This continuous spring provides drinking water to millions of visitors who come to the South Rim each year, pumped through a 6-inch aluminum pipe that's buried beneath the North Kaibab Trail.
