Yellowstone National Park will reopen Norris Campground 7 a.m. MST Friday, July 7, 2017 after the water system broke down.
Earlier this week, the park announced it would close the camp to new campers, since running water was unavailable in the campground and at most employee facilities in the Norris area.
Limited potable water and toilet use was available to campers who were on-site and already paid for multi-day reservations.
According to the Billings Gazette, while the system will be up and running, campers and residents “will be urged to boil the water for three minutes before drinking with it, washing dishes, or brushing their teeth.”
Tanks of water will still be on-site for campers in Norris Campground’s C Loop until the water system is completely “safe for human consumption.” It is not known how long this will take.
