NEWS CAPITAL CITY WEEKLY Sitka is raising its bet on something it and other Southeast Alaska towns know well: water.

Power from Rain

Sitka's Blue Lake dam is being raised 83 feet, which will raise the amount of power it can produce by about a third. The original dam is about 210 feet tall (70 of those feet are underground) and stands at about 342 feet above sea level. (Desiree Brandis, Barnard Construction)
