On the 1/19, there was some very grungy water in Boot Canyon, as you progress toward the South Rim from the red cabin.There was not very much of it, but there is some there. It is periodically scattered is the rock canyon bottom along the way. I would only want to drink it as a last resort. It might even be crunchy. And it may be best to leave it for wildlife, except in an emergency.
Sounds like my water filter will get a real workout down there. Last time I used the filter, I was filtering water from Clear Creek in the Grand Canyon. The water straight out of the creek looked as clear as tap water.
Bring along a coffee filter to screen out the chunky stuff and most of the "floaties" before running it through your filter.
