PHOENIX, Ariz.— The SWCA project team responsible for completing the Trans-Canyon Water Line Documentation Project received a 2016 Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Award at the Arizona Historic Preservation Conference in Phoenix.

In 1970, Grand Canyon National Park completed a pipeline to transport North Rim water 12.4 miles to the South Rim and its village. Replacement of 50-year-old line segments began in 2015, and SWCA was contracted to document the historical value of the pipeline.

The award, presented by the Arizona Preservation Foundation and the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office, recognizes people, organizations, and projects that represent outstanding achievements in preserving Arizona’s prehistoric and historic resources.
