The City and Borough of Sitka welcomes proposals from companies or individuals who are interested in fresh water export. We have permits to export 29,235 acre feet of fresh water per year (9.5 billion gallons) directly sourced from the Blue Lake reservoir. This abundant water source is fed by snow melt, and abundant rain precipitation. Blue Lake water is nearly pure in its natural state, so that Sitka is not required to filter it prior to purification and distribution to the consumer.
If you want to learn more about exporting fresh water from Sitka, Alaska, call or email the Sawmill Cove Executive Director: Garry White at 907-747-2660.
