For the first time since 2011, visitors at National Parks across the U.S. will be able to buy bottled water inside the parks. For the past 6 years, about two dozen parks, including Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore and Zion, banned the sale of plastic water bottles and encouraged visitors to bring their own reusable containers. That all changed when President Trump took office. A lobbying campaign that was initially unsuccessful at stopping the ban was renewed and Acting National Park Service Director Michael T. Reynolds issued a press release in August saying "ultimately it should be up to our visitors to decide how best to keep themselves and their families hydrated during a visit to a national park."
