FLAGSTAFF - The operators of the Grand Canyon Skywalk will be hauling water to the remote attraction after a pipeline froze and burst.

The Arizona Department of Water Resources says they gave the Hualapai (pronounced WALL-uh-pie) tribe permission Friday to haul as much as 20,000 gallons of water a day from Meadview to the site 30 miles away at the remote Grand Canyon West.

The horseshoe-shaped, glass-bottomed Skywalk opened in March. It is perched over the Grand Canyon, giving paying visitors a view of the canyon they can't get anywhere else.

A representative for the Hualapai says as many as 3,000 people per day visit.
