Sitka re-ups TAB bulk water contract

http://kcaw.org/modules/local_news/media/audio/

SITKA, ALASKA
TAB has been trying to export bulk water from Blue Lake for several years now. The company says it’s still working to develop markets, but that it has dissolved its partnership with Texas-based S2C Global. S2C had announced plans to build a water hub in India. Details on the end of TAB's partnership with S2C were not immediately available.

Under the deal approved last night, TAB will pay the city $75-thousand dollars per year to keep the rights to export water from Blue Lake.

Those rights were exclusive to TAB until last year when the city opened up the market to competitors. While some organizations expressed interest, so far none have worked out deals with Sitka for water shipments.
