Drinking Water Update – Additional Potable Water Available

The City of Iqaluit has potable bottles of water available for residents this week. Bottled water will be available every day of the week, but dates and locations have changed based on demand and traffic at each location.

Nakasuk School
Monday November 8 to Friday November 12 – 5:00PM to 7:00PM
Sunday November 14 – 1:00PM to 3:00PM

Arctic Winter Games Arena
Wednesday November 10 – 5:00PM to 7:00PM
Saturday November 13 – 1:00PM to 4:00PM

Household limits will be in effect throughout the water distribution. We recommend that this water be used for consumption only.

Residents are reminded to wear a mask, and that social distancing is required. Children are to be accompanied by an adult and require supervision at all times in water distribution areas due to the volume of vehicular traffic.

The City would also like to remind residents who are unable to pick water up from these locations that they can contact the Water Hotline at 867-979-5603, between the hours of 9AM and 5PM, Monday through Friday to arrange to have water delivered.

The City would like to thanks residents for their patience and understanding during this difficult time.
