Watersupply in Qaanaaq is a very expensive way to get water. I june, july,and August water comes from the mountain behind the city it is melted ice from ice cap. The water from ice cap are picked up in a large tank (2000 kbm ) and will be used in wintertime when the river is frozen.In winter our wheel loader and truck drives out on ice and dig ice out from frozen icebergs,back to town into our meltingvat. Nearly all privat inhabitant got water with our watertanker several time a week.
