Pipeline on the Precipice - Grand Canyon Hidden Waters - Grand Canyon 1 day ago   09:04

GrandCanyonNPS
The Trans-Canyon Pipeline was built in the late 1960's and supplies all of Grand Canyon National Park's drinking water. From its source at Roaring Springs on the North Rim, water travels 15 miles through an aging pipeline to reach the South Rim of the park. Over the past decade the pipeline has suffered numerous leaks, fissures, and breaks. Full replacement of the TCP is currently estimated at around $150 million.

"Guaranteed water to the South Rim is in peril as long as we have the existing pipeline and infrastructure in place. If we don’t have that, then everybody goes home." Grand Canyon National Park Superintnedent, Dave Uberuaga.

The Grand Canyon experience has become a commercial, profit centered conglomeration of shops, eateries and other high-priced services and goods. Those places are making bank for their owners while taxpayer funding by NPS is limited. Those making mega-bucks off their privileged access to our park service should share in the costs of replacing that pipeline. It only right.

WHY NOT RAISE THE PRICE OF ADMISSION INTO THE PARK FOR ALL VISITORS AND FIX THE PROBLEM. GOD, WE ARE SO FUCKING STUPID IN THIS SOCIETY.

Las Vegas , Nebada must stop water flow to this land. They did on purpose...jealousy. However, in deep water is running to this ancient magnificient place connect to Mexico.

How about Bill Gates or Paul Allen donating the funds to rebuild the pipeline? They have the money, it would be great public relations and it would help the people who live and work in the canyon. and it would be tax deductible!

What about Crowdsourcing? Since Congress is too cheap to appropriate the funds.

I will trade two pipe lines or Glen Canyon Dam.

is there no way to get water from a source on the South Rim?? seems like that would be alot cheaper and easier?? i have spent time on the navajo reservation on the south rim and they have water. where are they getting it from?

Visit eenews.net/stories/1060028827 for a good overview of alternatives to replacing the Trans Canyon Pipeline that are being explored. Could save taxpayers money and prevent using water from Canyon streams and the local aquifer.

Having ran this river in October on a private trip I hope a good share of our permit money went to fund this project. The park staff we encountered on our trip were great. The ranger giving our briefing at Lee's Ferry was doing his first ever briefing and was a cool guy.

Thank you Park Service for preserving this treasure.

Bigfoot spotted in the background at 1:17. PROOF! :)

We now have the technology to drill a well at the South Rim without ripping up the Canyon... why are we re-doing this again? It's old technology, it destroys the natural environment of the Canyon, and the water from a well would be coming from the same aquifer. Plus, it would be a lot cheaper! It just doesn't make sense anymore. Please think people!

Good video. Seems like the town and the park should share the cost as the town of Tusayn is the major beneficiary of all that water at the rim.
