Washington to sell tab water to the middle east?
Jun 25, 2009 : The Cosmopolis pulp mill, located near Aberdeen in Washington state, was closed by Weyerhaeuser in 2005. The city of Aberdeen now has 30 million gallons of water a day available that the pulp mill no longer requires.
Recently the public works director of Aberdeen said the town was approached by the Gulf Pacific Rim Group of Qatar to purchase that water supply.
A dock would need to be built, and then the drinking water could be loaded into ships for delivery to the Middle East.
