GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. (AP) - A break in the Trans-Canyon Water Pipeline and inclement weather delaying equipment from reaching repair crews has resulted in a water shortage at Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

Officials say visitors hiking to Phantom Ranch must be self-sufficient and be prepared to carry or treat all drinking water.

In consultation with the National Park Service, Xanterra South Rim LLC has temporarily suspended its Phantom Ranch overnight accommodations and services as of Thursday.

All Grand Canyon National Park trails remain open.
