    SITKA, Alaska (AP) — Two companies are looking to secure new bulk water contracts in a million-dollar deal with Sitka officials to export water from a city lake.The Sitka Sentinel reports that Alaska Bulk Water Inc. and Arctic Blue Waters gained early approval Monday from Gary Paxton Industrial Park's board of directors. Board members voted to recommend the Sitka Assembly approve the groups' contracts.

    Arctic Blue Waters is requesting the majority of the water that's available from Blue Lake and will pay most of the $1.1 million for the water rights.

    Alaska Bulk had held water rights to the lake for nearly 10 years until February. It lost its contract with the city when it failed to meet performance requirements and pay the $1 million needed to renew the contract.
