    I really love being on trucked water. I’m sure there’s a better, more cost effective system, but I Iqaluit’s current alternative is not it.

      I certainly don’t miss being on truck water and sewage, I have extra space where my water tanks used to be, I don’t miss having to clean the water tanks yearly and during blizzards when the roads are closed I don’t have to worry about water or sewage.
      Keeping the pipes clear of snow and so on for the trucks.
      Problem here is I don’t think they install the utilidor properly, but for the most part we have never had any issues around our area in the last 20 years.
