SITKA, Alaska (AP) - Sitka assembly members are giving Alaska Bulk Water Incorporated a sixth chance to start exporting.

KCAW-FM reports (https://bit.ly/1LKKIGQ) no water whatsoever has been shipped in the nine years since the company, under a different name, drew up its first purchase agreement with Sitka. CEO Terry Trapp told the assembly Tuesday that moving water from Alaska to other parts of the world isn’t easy.

The company has paid $1.35 million to keep the contract, and will spend $1 million more on this latest extension. A new water station cost Alaska Bulk $1.5 million, among a variety of other costs.

The contract gives Alaska Bulk access to 92 percent of Sitka’s commercial water. Trapp said the company is keeping the amount paid to the city at a penny per gallon.
