Inuvik WTP Piping

Water Treatment Plant - Inuvik, NT

The Town of Inuvik owned and operated two water supply and associated treatment facilities to provide potable water for the community on a year-round basis. The pre-existing water treatment plants were reaching intended lifespans and needed to be upgraded or replaced. A new water treatment plant opened in March 2017.
