A Texas company S2C Global Systems
that it is moving forward
with a plan to ship 2.9 billion to 9 billion gallons of water a year from the small Alaskan town of Sitka
to the west coast of India (near Mumbai). If the company succeeds in carrying out the shipments, the deal would represent the world’s first regular, bulk exports of water via tanker. The water will be redistributed to places in India, southeast Asia and the Middle East. The Alaskan town of about 8,000 people could earn up to 90 million a year in revenue.
