Guadalupe Mountains National Park Acting Superintendent, Darren Bryant, has updated an announcement that the Dog Canyon Area of the park, will close for approximately six weeks, beginning January 20, 2015, to replace the water system. The project will involve replacing the existing 10,000-gallon, steel water tank with a 50,000-gallon, glass-lined water tank, new distribution lines, pumps and valves. During this project the water system will be shut down. No front or backcountry access will be available at Dog Canyon during the project and hikers and backpackers will not be able to obtain water there.
