 Hi Connor, I am looking at past NPC and NIRB applications and noticed that in 2017 to construct and operate a new water treatment plant and drinking water storage reservoir (Cell #3). I couldn't see any related NWB license for it. I just wanted to have a clarification if and how the current application is different from that one . Could youn please clarify that for me? Thank you.

 Hi Connor, I was looking at past NPC and NIRB applications and noticed that Arviat was approved in 2017 to move forward with a proposal to construct and operate a new water treatment plant and drinking water storage reservoir (Cell #3). However, I couldn't find any related NWB license for it. Would you mind to clarify if and how that application is different from the current one?

2020-07-24 15:40:21, from: Connor Faulkner
 Hi Goump, Arviat has been operating without a water licence since 2015/16. The previous 3AM-ARV1015 expired on August 31, 2015 and 3AM-ARV1016 (short term renewal) expired on February 27, 2016. The renewal of this water licence has been held up due to the turnover of staff in the Rankin Inlet CGS office, as well as the inclusion of projects. The new water treatment plant and water reservoir cell #3 came online in November of 2019. This project is not currently included in a water licence as operations have been continuing without one for the time period given above. The drawings and plans for these can be found in the documents section of the application. Also to note is studies are currently being done by Stantec for a sewage lagoon and solid waste site expansion, but due to the time of operations without a licence and the new water treatment plant and water reservoir cell #3 now in operations, we are moving ahead with the renewal/amendment of the water licence and will submit an amendment application once the studies are completed in regards to the latter projects mentioned. Thank you, Connor
