Community Water Panel

March 16, 2016

Free

Who’s in Charge of Your Drinking Water?
If you live in Island County, chances are that you are! The majority of water systems in Island County are community owned and are accountable to their members through a council, commission, or board.

Could Flint, Michigan happen here? What are the threats to our drinking water? Attend our local drinking water forum to voice your questions and concerns and find out how you can help safeguard your water supply. Meet your State, County, and municipal drinking water staff. Join small group discussions to identify common concerns and find out how to participate.

This session takes place on the evening of March 16, from 7 to 8:30 pm.

This session is supported by the Whidbey Institute and Thriving Communities Bioregional Conference, being held the following 3 days, with a focus on Water and Community.

This is a public forum, open to all. 

Panelists:

  • Helen Price-Johnson, Island County Commissioner, District 1
  • Keith Higman, Director, Island County Public Health Department
  • Jennifer Kropack, Regional Planner, Washington State DOH Office of DrinkingWater,
  • Randi Perry, Utilities Manager, City of Langley
