Iqaluit asks residents to back off water consumption

 

For a few weeks now residents in Iqaluit have been asked to refrain from taking showers – and to not wash their cars.

Why? Lake Geraldine is low.

And that’s where the capital of Nunavut gets its water from.

The question people are asking is how long this will last.

  1. I hope it includes the commercial facilities such as factories also. More investment in research and innovation for water treatment so that water source is not a limiting factor. I am sure Alberta oilsands water treatment innovation that treats saline groundwater can help.
