Kotzebue, which is surrounded by salt water and brackish water, needs fresh, liquid water year-round. The Arctic tundra is frozen most of the year. This pipeline brings water from Devil's Lake into town. In the winter the water is heated at its source, and the thick insulation keeps the water from freezing in the pipe.
