A long lineup for water in Iqaluit

About 50 Iqaluit residents line up with water jugs at a fill station by the library around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, following the arrival of the first water truck of the day. The water at the fill station is being pumped from a nearby river, following Tuesday’s announcement that the city’s tap water may be contaminated by fuel. Residents are being advised to not drink tap water, and to boil water from the river before drinking it. (Photo by Mélanie Ritchot)
