Theme of this Meeting: DOH and Island County Update
This quarter’s topic is an update from the DOH Office of Drinking Water, Northwest Regional Office, and Island County Environmental Health and Drinking Water programs. Both agencies have had personnel changes, with some familiar faces and some new ones in new roles. Look for updates on rule making, especially around PFAS. Your board has a number of questions for the panelists, but there will be plenty of time for audience questions!

Our guest panelists are:
Office of Drinking Water:
  Derek Pell,
Northwest Regional Manager
  Bob James,
Regional Engineer, Island County
  Jennifer Kropack,
Regional Planner
  and maybe more!
Island County Environmental Health
  Heather Kortuem, Manager
  Aneta Hupfauer, Drinking Water Program
  and maybe more!
John Lovie – Moderator
