Executive Summary of the Municipality of Arctic Bay; Water Licence #3BM-ARC 1419; Type -B. The Municipality of Arctic Bay is a vibrant, traditional Community of Baffin Region with a population 830 in 2019 and located at Latitude 73002’N and Longitude 83005’W, on Borden Peninsula, Baffin Island. This safe harbour hamlet is situated upon a south-facing gravel beach on Adams Sound, which feeds into Admiralty Inlet, draining northwards to Lancaster Sound and the Northwest Passage. Inhabited by nomadic arctic peoples for 5,000 years, it is also named ‘Ikpiarjuk’ which means ‘the pocket’ in Inuktitut, referring to the way the site is surrounded by protective hills on three sides. Its sheltered shores and steep cliffs provide nesting habitat for many unique species of High Arctic birds and its sea waters are home to narwhals and bowhead whales. Every year in the spring a popular dog sledding race takes place between Arctic Bay and Igloolik that draws the best teams from across Nunavut. Summer temperatures range from 0°C to 15°C. Protected from strong north winds, Arctic Bay enjoys a surprisingly stable climate. Fall and spring weather is variable, with temperatures between 0°C and -30°C. The snow begins to melt in May, but the sea ice doesn’t break up until the end of July. Winter temperatures hover around -35°C yet can sometimes drop to -50°C on very rare occasions. The Community infrastructure includes: (1) a water supply facility which draws water from a big Lake. Water is treated in the Truck fill station, filled the truck and delivered into holding tanks in each building. (2) The Community has a single cell sewage lagoon which receives trucked sewage (wastewater) from the holding tanks in each building. The sewage is being naturally treated there before disposal to the wetland land for the receiving body. (3) The Solid waste facility which includes domestic wastes, construction wastes, metal wastes and hazardous goods. The current water licence #3BM-ARC1419, was issued on Aug.29, 2014 and will be expired on Aug.28, 2019. Nothing was changed since the Water Licence was issued. The municipality has been operating these licensed facilities to their best ability. They have water permit 50,005 cubic meters annually. The water Truck fill station is under the Capital program and expected to be replaced in next 5yrs. currently a consultant has been engaged to conduct a research on raw water quality in winter and summer. The municipality has be conducting sampling of raw water, treated water, wastewater effluent and leachate on annual basis. Their annual reporting program is up to date.
