The Assembly Monday night let a Docks and Harbors Board decision stand, increasing the potable water fee by a $1.32 per 1,000 gallons.
The fee only applies to ships that tie up at the Cruise Terminal and Alaska Steamship berths.
The city’s drinking water fees have remained the same since 2005. The fee goes from $3.35 to $4.67 per 1,000 gallons.
Juneau sells about 27-million gallons of drinking water annually at the downtown berth.
Skagway is the only other Southeast port that sells metered water, at a fee of $4.20 cents per 1,000 gallons.
