TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — The Niagara Bottling company announced plans Wednesday to develop a $50 million bottling plant at a business park in Frederickson.

The company says 90 percent of its water is bottled for retailers under their private labels.

The News Tribune reports that at full production of one million gallons a day, the bottling plant will be the third-largest customer for Tacoma Public Utilities after the Simpson Tacoma Kraft mill and the city of Fife.

California-based Niagara operates a dozen bottling plants in nine states. Frederickson will be the first in the Northwest.

Tacoma Public Utilities draws the water out of the Green River at the Howard Hanson Dam.
