Executive Summary of the Hamlet of Pond inlet Water Licence # 3BM-PON 1012, Type B.
The Hamlet of Pond Inlet is located on the northern edge of Baffin Island in the Qikitani Region of Nunavut at latitude of 77042’NN and Longitude 77059’W. The current population of Pond inlet is estimated to be 1632 (2019). The Hamlet of Pond Inlet is responsible for the management of the water and waste management facilities and the solid waste disposal facility. These facilities are operating under the current Licence 3BM-PON 1012 which remains active until June 29, 2020.
The Hamlet of Pond Inlet obtains its potable water from a natural stream, called Simon Creek, located approximately 1km from the community and 0.75km from the airport. Water is drawn out of the Creek in September and stored in a natural Ditch/Reservoir located close to the water source. The current licence authorized the use of 75,000 m3 of water per year.
A consultant is working on the standardization of the new Water Treatment Plant. The design works will be started once design concept is approved. The new water plant is recommended to produce better quality of water to satisfy the National drinking water guidelines. The new plant is anticipated to be built and operational in next 3 to 4 yrs.
The sewage disposal facility is a single cell lagoon located about 1km away from the community center. The Sewage lagoon was reported leaking. A dye test was conducted and found no leakage or seepage through the berm. This is a lined lagoon and easily satisfying the Community demand. A gravity drainage system was built but this system is disabled. A diesel pump is used during decanting period and sampling is taken at the beginning, at the middle and at the end of decanting.
The solid waste disposal facility is located adjacent to the sewage treatment facility and includes the existing solid waste site and the hazardous material storage area. The bulky waste site is unsorted and may contain a mixture of different types of hazardous materials.
A consultant is expected to start working soon on the wastes audit and feasibility study of the solid waste management. They are not on board yet. The design work will start soon after the site is selected. The new site is recommended to accommodate all types of wastes and expected to be built in next 3 to 4 years. The individual cell will treat each type of waste. The new site will be fenced with a control gate.
The Hamlet conducts summer sampling and submits annual report on time. Therefore, a five year term for renewal of the licence is recommended. The time period of five year is expected to provide a realistic opportunity for the licensee to meet the long term requirements of the Licence and establish a consistent compliance record.
